By the traditional sense something that is Handcrafted only uses hands to craft the product. Since the term was coined in the seventeenth century much has changed.
Over time this definition has evolved to use hand tools and more recently power tools. Making a dress using a sewing machine and store bought material is still hand made, right?
Today’s craftsperson draws on both traditional practices of their craft and incorporates new technologies.
In our studio we start with raw materials. Our team works to design, shape, and ensure a quality finish on each and every product. Woodworking is a very hands-on process, though it typically includes a variety of tools that make the final products possible. We have a deep connection with our craft and work on the concept of making each item special and unique.
Happily Handcrafted offers an ethical alternative to mass-production; each of our items are design and created by our team at The House of Happy with care and skill.
Buying Handcrafted means your purchasing a little piece of the makers heart and soul.
