Automation has made it possible to produce so many objects — from bread to shoes — without the intervention of human hands (assuming that pressing a button doesn’t count). What things do you still prefer in their traditional, handmade version?
Food made at home with loving care and dedication.
Items stirred and mixed and flavoured by hand.
