Handmade items are made to last, using the finest high quality materials. They’re made to withstand the test of time.
What goes into a piece of handcrafted art?
When you buy handmade you are not just buying the materials, you are buying the artists time, energy, hours of work, errors and experiments, creativity and skill, quality and details, tradition and culture and so on to bring these pieces of art to reach the customer. This is why handmade things tend to be expensive but not overpriced.
Apart from that, the important reason why handmade is expensive, because it’s made by hand and it takes more time. Machines can make hundreds of pieces in the time a craftsman finishes one product. The workers deserve to be well paid for their time, skill, and passion. It means people ask for the price it is worthy of.
The important thing that needs our attention is, just because it is handmade doesn’t meant it will be cheap. Then again, you get what you pay for. Click here
