Why you should buy more artisan products?

Artisan products are handmade, unique, and high-quality products made using traditional techniques. 

Many of these techniques are passed down from generation to generation, making these products unique in the world. 

Are you considering buying artisan products? 

you might consider changing your fast clothing to artisan products 

Quality

Fast fashion products are often made of inferior materials and are designed to be disposable to be thrown away after use. Artisan products, on the other hand, are often made from high-quality materials and are designed to last. When you invest in handcrafted products, you’re investing in a piece that has been made with care and skill and will stand the test of time like leather, cotton, and silk, many of these products are biodegradable and environmentally friendly. 

Traditional techniques

Artisans use traditional techniques such as hand weaving, and hand dyeing to color some textiles using natural colors, and embroidery to create their products. These techniques result in unique and intricate patterns that add character and beauty to the final product.

The indigenous people in Ecuador use ancient techniques that are passed from generation to generation, these techniques can be traced back to pre-Columbian times, unfortunately, today, due to globalism, these techniques are being lost and the historical culture and identity of many of these peoples are in danger to disappear. 

Ethics

Many fast fashion brands are notorious for their poor working conditions, low wages, exploitation of workers, lack of health care, and breaking of many human rights. Artisan products, on the other hand, are often handmade in small workshops where artisans can ensure that workers are paid fairly and work in safe conditions. By switching to artisan products, you can help promote fair working conditions and support artisans who are treated fairly.

Sustainability

Fast fashion contributes significantly to environmental problems such as pollution, waste, and greenhouse gas emissions. Artisan products, on the other hand, are often made from natural and organic materials and in small batches, which helps reduce waste and overproduction. By switching to artisan products, you can help reduce the environmental impact of the fashion industry and promote sustainable practices.

Personal satisfaction

When you choose to buy artisan products, you feel good about making a conscious decision to support traditional techniques, local economies, ethical and sustainable practices, and contribute to a better world.
