Hand Made Authenticity

Morocco 2015

In a 21st century world of factories and robots, the Kingdom of Morocco maintains its sincere emphasis on superior craftsmanship. If you take a walk through any medina in Morocco, you will not miss men and women working on metallurgy, woodworking, textiles in both dyeing and weaving, tanning, and many other handicrafts. Additionally, while supermarkets are around, much of the produce, meat, and fish is sold on the streets by farmers, butchers, and fisherman, respectively.

The immense care put into these practices is inspiring. On the one hand, while I am impressed by advances in computer modeling and 3d printing, there is nothing like having a handmade item that is one of a kind.
