Without artistic records from the past, we would not know how industrialization has removed the connection of 'making' from the original processing of raw materials and satisfaction of creating.

Post industrial society often views artisan work as too simple to make a career from. Creative people think differently. These days a hand crafter, especially women with young children, can mix artisan work with other interests, and many creatives make a great effort to work for themselves in this way, when they have no wish to use their energy to support someone else's business endeavour in which they would only be menial low paid employee.

Instead of importing cheap goods from a country with a much lower living costs than the western world, all the women with young children could be meaningfully employed in craft works rather than separating themselves from the children while they go to work in a job!

That is the reason I decided to work for myself in order to stay close to my children.

The work paradigm for women could change if globalization diminished. Countries allowing such trade, have not considered their own population, and how it would deplete the ability of artisans and crafts people.

The fashion industry has exploited this position for a long time; making profits for owners and middle men who do not 'do' any of the making: manufacturing abroad, to provide cheap clothes at home, whilst also exploiting the worker nation's own population in the rush to manufacture as quickly and cheaply as possible.

China has suicide nets around factory buildings.
India's rivers run coloured from industrial die and chemical waste, poisoning local children.

It is natural to satisfy the natural desire to 'dress'; in all cultures, body adornment is one of the most cross-cultural visible representations of humanity.

This desire is best appreciated when the origins of materials and connection with the maker of clothes is known and understood, in a way which gives meaning to the clothes, that appreciates the essence of inspiration behind them.

GREAT idea for recycled tyres but one plain colour would show the flower colours up better, as the right paint is brighter than the flowers. Pale grey, beige, or black, would be my choice. The rims on the tyres or 'grip bumps' in the tyres could be highlight painted in gold or silver.

Purple clothes found in charity shops ~ additional stock for purple collection: ready for incorporation into patchwork dress or kimono. Cottons, linens, viscose, taffeta, lace, polyester all turn into a new garment. Shiny polyester dress will be used as a lining.
