Top Essentials For Sustainable Living: Handicrafts
Although manufactured items have become popular in the last few years, handicrafts are gradually getting more attention. Is there any benefit besides their unique beauty that makes people switch to using handcrafted products? Find out the reasons with Artera Home now.
Each handicraft is unique
Handcrafted products are not mass-produced like industrial ones. Each product is handmade, and there’s no stereotype.
Each piece, while relying on the same requested form, is made with each artisan's different level and technique. Sometimes, even moods and enthusiasm moments can put a hidden gem into the products they are weaving.
Therefore, even with the same design, each hand-woven handicraft is a unique version you cannot find anywhere.
They have a good impact on the environment
In terms of Artera Home handicrafts, all of them are made from nature, such as seagrass, water hyacinth, or rattan so their life cycle is always guaranteed not to cause harm to the environment, even when decomposing.
In the long run, we can reuse, renew, or recycle them for many purposes. For example, Artera Phat Diem baskets can be flexibly stored or decorated. When you use all the advantages of them, you can remove the frame and then bury the seagrass back into the ground as fertilizer for plants.
On the manufacturer aspect, Artera Home strives to minimize the negative effect during the production process. We choose seagrass and water hyacinth as potential solutions for living green with nature. Due to their fast expansion, harvesting these materials will reduce their obstruction in river systems.
As a result, other species can have enough space to grow then the ecosystem can be more balanced. In other words, handcrafted products could help us meet human needs while ensuring environmental protection.
Each handicraft conveys a story
Behind handcrafted products, there is always a story about the artisans and the process of making them. To reach your home, each product goes through a long process from raw material harvesting, cleaning, weaving, drying, then product finishing. Each stage consumes time, effort, and hard work from not only Artisans but also Artera Home and our eco-systems.
From a long-lasting handicraft village in Vietnam, Artera wants to ensure its traditional lives on. The progress is endless, and so are artisan's spirits. It's an ongoing process taken for years, yet until the present can Artera proudly bring all-in values to your home, and beyond all, worldwide!
Handicrafts represent a traditional culture
In many countries, handcrafted products represent a rich history of traditional craftsmanship. With Artera Home, most ones are created by the skillful hands of artisans in Vietnam.
Our grandparents have handed down the esoteric principles and methods of the profession for many generations. If not cared for, they will fade over the years. In other words, using handmade products is a way to encourage artisans to maintain this craft filled with humanity and art.
Handicrafts help support artisans’ lives
In Vietnam, the production of handicraft products helps the artisans have an additional source of income. First is the source of income from the sale of products. Furthermore, they also have an additional payment from harvesting materials.
For example, farmers in Ninh Binh often harvest seagrass to sell to many craft workshops across the country. Profits from handicrafts will help artisans make a living, as well as invest more in facilities to promote and develop the craft village.
The core value here is not just about economics. Each product sold further gives artisans confidence in the craftsmanship and products they create. Since then, artisans have been motivated to maintain and develop their weaving skills, continuing the journey of creating unique handmade products.
Handicraft really gives you a lot of benefits. Not only owning the unique beauty of handicrafts, but you also positively impact the environment. Plus, you are contributing to preserving the beauty of the craft village and the dedication of the people who make the products.
