We are reconnecting with our possessions
Technology has advanced our society to the point where we are voluntarily slowing down. Mass production and outsourcing have created a disconnect between the consumer and the product. It is indicative of a transition away from disposable, meaningless items, towards a more conscious and engaged consumer. A consumer who is curious about where their new purchase came from, who made it, and how it found its way into their hands. These are the questions we should all be asking, and they are a lot easier to answer when buying from the makers themselves.
