We have always supported craftsmanship, the handmade product.
A handmade object is not only unique and unrepeatable.
A handmade object transpires the love and passion with which it was made, the dedication and attention to detail, from conception to realization.
This is why the craftsman puts his name and face on what he does.
When you give a handmade object, you are giving a clear message:
you are telling that person that they deserve something unique and special.
You’re giving some of the attention and craftsmanship that that object absorbed while it was being created.
Buying a handmade object, not only gives the opportunity to know the person who made it, where and how it was made, but it is also a way to directly support craftsmanship and creativity, to reward talent, passion and care in what is done.
This is a different way of shopping, “conscious shopping” can change the rules of trade and the standards of globalization.
And that’s not all.
When you buy directly from the producer, there are no intermediate steps, so the price does not inflate:
what you pay is the actual value of the object, made by those who know what is behind to make it.
Handmade objects are often the result of manual activities that are disappearing and buying a handmade object is the only way to keep alive manual techniques, often ancient, that few people know how to make.
By buying a handmade object, you show that not everything in this world is mass-produced and that it can be beautiful even what does not meet conventional parameters.
Moreover, each item is brought into a story that is the result of many factors: what inspired the craftsman, what material he chose to use, the difficulties encountered in creating it, the joy felt in designing and making it.
An aura that increases the value of the object, which makes it unique.
In short, buying and giving a handmade object becomes a “pleasant experience”, for those who make it, for those who buy it, for those who receive it.
