Why we love stories

Throughout history, humans have used stories to not only build identity but also  connect with others.

Stories are our earliest teachers – we learned from the victories and defeats of others before us, and they are how we passed on our history from one generation to the next.

One of the oldest and most common medium to pass on our stories was in the arts and handicrafts of our cultures. Every culture, used this beautiful medium to depict takes from the past and the gems of knowledge.

This is why we have so much reverence for anything created using hands. Handmade means there is a story, meaning and most of all a little bit of spirit of the maker, residing within every creation. Surround yourself with handmade items and you will feel warmth. Handmade has a completely different energy.
