handmade

please watch all 9 minutes and 11 seconds of this short movie from Ben Proudfoot on two neighboring shops in Los Angeles that have been selling paper and letterpress for over ninety years. It will show you how all that is handmade is beautiful and needs our appreciation. Today there are so many young and talented people who are becoming craftsmen, which is great, but I cannot shake the feeling that in that process we are forgetting about the original craftsmen

Rainer Spehl’s laptop cases are hand made and absolutely beautiful. The video shows Spehl in his workshop showcasing the craftsmanship with which he makes his cases. Anything that is made with such care and attention deserves to be used with the same amount of care and attention. For a long period of time.
