4 E-Shops Where To Find The Best Handmade Decor Items
First of all, handmade decor items and handmade products, in general, are part of a societal change taking place right now. Aesthetic is not the only preoccupation anymore when making a purchase. We also care about the “how it’s made”. Thus we like to know how and who is behind the products we purchase. It adds a new dimension to that product, letting us get attached to it and not treating it as another disposable thing. Also, It allows us to tell a story when someone asks about a specific object. “It was made by a Brazilian couple who plants banana trees and make baskets out of their leaves is more enticing than I bought it at Wallmart/Maison du Monde, Target…”.
That part of the process has become so important that even those big enterprises start to develop handmade products line.
Handmade as a part of the slow life trend
As discussed in 11 Foolproof Ways To Add A Slow Life Vibe To Your Interior, slow living is all about taking your time. Which is exactly what handmade means: Taking the time to imagine and shape an object. It’s not all about rentability anymore but more about actually enjoying the process of making and loving what you do step by step. We are getting more and more enthusiastic about craftsmanship. So much, that shops all around the world are dedicated to it entirely. The big advantage we have nowadays is that thanks to the internet, we have access to worldwide crafts and know-how.
