Today we are talking about handmade.
“When Life gives you
Just plain walls and empty living rooms are not appealing to the eyes. Every nook and corner of the house can have its own elegance, its own beauty and its own charm with just a little addition of handmade items. Someone rightly said “When design and craft meet they create a wonderful combination called “Handmade”
A warm welcome to the world of handmade. ‘HANDMADE’ as the name suggests is a piece of art done with human hands with great effort, care, lot of passion, creativity and minute detailing in every product. You cannot compare handmade products to mass produced products.
An artisan uses imagination, creativity and the skill to create a product. Some are purely handmade. Artisans put in all their effort in creating every single piece which consumes lot of time, patience and energy. The creativity flow in these items is beyond imagination.
Artisans can’t escape the urge of creating things and they put in all their feelings in the paper, glue, clay and all sorts of things. They leave their mark in the works they create. This applies not just to one type of handcrafted item but to all types of handcrafted items. In any Handmade product the raw materials are of the best quality since they are personally selected by the artisan, the workman ship involved in creating the product is of much superior quality and the final ready product is something that one can treasure for his life time, something that brings a smile on everyone’s face. Something that makes one wonder “How beautiful is this”. One can consider himself to be a proud owner of this truly magnificent piece.
Each individual item has its own persona, creativity at its best, enormous ideas, imagination and a identity of its own. These sort of elements cannot be replicated in mass produced items.
Some Artisans can use their creativity, skill and knowledge to create a custom made item for you as per your requirements for a particular occasion. The one of its kind and uniquely personalized just for you. It can be a special gift to someone or just a home decor piece in that special corner of the house. It takes a lot of time, the best of raw materials and you have to well appreciate the finished product.
Sometimes we get to see some really breathtaking designs which are created after long hours and days of hard work and dedication. Every Artisan’s imagination is Unique and this can be very well seen in the items created.
More and more people should buy handmade items and support small business and this in turn, can be a boost to our economy as a whole. Small business can help everyone to prosper in their own field, be in in the local markets or their own small organisation.

Well as for buyers who want to purchase handmade for the house or as gifts for those special occasions.
When you buy something made by a person, there is something special there, and you do feel it. The consciousness with which a thing is made is often more important than the thing itself. – J. Donald Waters
Happiness is handmade!!!!
