Hand Made Does Not Mean Cheap

When I saw this on Pinterest I had to shout, “Amen!”

In the words of Edwin Pireh, “Handmade is labor intensive and generally associated with high-end products. Someone is creating and assembling a product by hand. The focus is on care and delivering the best product, the perfect design, the right stitch, the best material, and so on.

No two handmade products are identical because of minor differences and a mastered technique by an individual in producing each product have a unique effect. With so much attention put into these products they tend to last longer and perform better over time. This is the real beauty and real value of being handmade.”

Handmade – They don’t make it like that anymore! The unique art in modern times, this method is a lot more labour intensive and generally associated with high end products. Countries known for their handmade products include Italy, England, France and Germany. Basically, someone is creating and assembling a product by hand. There is a huge focus on care and delivering the best product – the perfect design, the right stitch, the right colour, the best material and so on. – See more at: http://edwinpireh.com/machine-made-vs-handmade/#sthash.75kxiUiN.dpuf

No two handmade products are identical. Why? Minor differences and a mastered technique by an individual in producing each product have a unique effect. With so much attention put into these products they tend to last much longer and perform better over time. This is the real beauty and real value of being handmade.

Machine made – A machine made product is basically made from start to finish by a machine or mechanical device. The major benefit is that the product can be made quickly compared to its handmade version. Every product will be very close to being identical. Cheaper prices coupled with high demand have increased mass production from countries such as China and India to cater for the consumer.

The push towards machine made products is mainly due these two reasons – price and demand. Why should I pay the same amount of money for a product that either looks the same or does the job? Fair question which I am sure has many sides to the coin!
