The Craft And The Makers

We have always tried to help get a word out and promote small manufacturers that focus on craftsmanship and aim to create quality products that last and have their own histories. A new book called The Craft and the Makers showcases savvy businesses that have chosen to focus on craftsmanship and are creating things with a soul, every page is a testament to the products created with heart by these artisans, and profiles the small companies as well as the individuals that drive them.
