The possibility of “individual project” and personal contact is there. If we like a gift wallet, but we want it in black and not in brown, we cannot turn to the store vendor with such a desire. But we can, to the man who made it. We want green in these earrings, we want a personalized caption or layout in the preferred colors – for most artists there is no particular problem to fulfill our desire. Personal contact will allow you to be fit, complement the interior, and complete the toilet. In an environment of globalization and conveyor production, finding such an attitude is almost impossible.
Helping young and not so young artists and craftsmen as a personal cause
Most people who are involved with manual creativity are quite brave in this decision. They have escaped the cliché that we must surely find a secure and well-paid job with good insurance and rushed into the stormy sea of free practice and insecure day of the artist. This decision deserves respect and support from those who are not so talented to be able to afford this freedom. There are the high quality leather gifts that you can make use of now.
Wooden toys are environmentally friendly, safe and increasingly preferred
The cost of handmade products
It is usually the price that stops us. However we are on the side of artists and craftsmen, we want to help them, everyone has a limited budget and our choice is to stop at the cheaper and most affordable – promotions and sales in the big shops and malls. Maybe we’re a little spoiled and we’re still looking for convenience, maybe we’re too big consumers, of course – trying to save money. And maybe it’s all about marketing.
Many of the artists are unable to present themselves, to present their work, and to highlight their qualities that we, consumers, are directly concerned with. The quality of the materials, the ease of maintenance, and the importance for health are factors that also come to our decision to choose one product in front of another. Many of them do not know the rules of Internet popularity – using keywords in product descriptions, quality photos and designs, emphasizing on the uniqueness, personal attitude and history of their works, so theirs can be easily discovered and recognized in the sea from production. Just because of these little accents, we do not actually buy a teddy bear or a key house, but magic, history, inner experience. For example, the personalized luggage tags.
And then the money ceases to be a factor
Are you worth more than a few lava if you want to support freedom of creativity? To be yourself and to do what you do best to make, to create and to enjoy people. Receive, give or have something that is created for you and can you look at the author in his eyes, communicate with him and touch the artist’s energy? With a few more bucks you buy something that no one else has, an experience no one else will experience. And that’s no price.
