As a lot of us in blogland are aware there is a growing trend toward the homemade, one off pieces when it comes to filling the closet or even the home. Sure we still rely on mass production, but people these days have the knowledge that what they've bought in shop may have been the end of the line of sweatshops and generally speaking unfair work conditions for some other struggling individual.

In our consumerist society we are buying too much, and not appreciating what we do have.
