Craftsmanship in today's world

   Generations ago the connection  we had with the land and the influence it had on us was lost . America moved from an agrarian  economy to an industrial economy , it's society changing with the move . The industrial revolution with its constant technological advances removed the dependance on hand crafted products . Mass production and ever increasing technology displaced craftsmanship and handmade products . Which brought about social and cultural changes as well as economic change . With our present reliance and addiction to technology it would seem craftsmanship should become extinct . But that's definitely not the situation , craftsmanship as a vocation and more importantly as a lifestyle is growing .     The phylosophy of lowering production costs to the bare minimum , all so lowered the consumers expectations . For the average consumer , economics and corporate marketing dictated the gradual switch to mass market goods and services  . The consumer  was eventually left with a narrow field of choices . But the current  market created by technology and corporate business serves as a vivid example of why we need craftsmanship . Junk food , fast food , fast fashion and disposable products !?!?  Handcrafted in a traditional manner is not just a possible  option , it's a way of life . A traditional  way of life .

 Hand crafted means made by hand ! All the hats are formed on wooden blocks by hand , not mechanically .

Hand crafted means made by hand ! All the hats are formed on wooden blocks by hand , not mechanically .

 Hand carving the blocks we use to shape our hats . Still being done the way it should be done .

Hand carving the blocks we use to shape our hats . Still being done the way it should be done .

 Done by hand with skill and care using traditional techniques .
