The Craft and the Makers

Tradition with Attitude

A showcase of crafted products created by small manufacturers.

Craftsmanship is an expression of quality, passion, and mindset. This book is a showcase of crafted products created by small manufacturers.

Craftsmanship is in more demand than ever and small manufacturers are experiencing an overwhelming renaissance. We are increasingly looking for products that last and have their own histories; things that meld form, function, and emotion into a compelling entity. This desire will continue to shape our attitudes toward consumer and luxury goods as well as innovation for the foreseeable future. Today, there are already many people who are not concerned with a logo, chasing the next trend, or contributing to a disposable society. They would rather seek objects of real value and own things with which they can truly identify.

The Craft and the Makers showcases savvy businesses that are choosing to focus on craftsmanship and aiming to create things with a soul. A decisive role is played by melding tradition and innovation—from the raw materials used to the finished product. The book introduces small enterprises as well as the personalities that drive them. These artisans are using their skills to produce handicraft that meets the highest standards. Whether furniture, porcelain, or leather goods, all of the products featured here offer today’s true luxury: the perfect fusion of creativity and craftsmanship that results in quality and durability. Reflecting this spirit, every page is a testament to the products created with heart that are much more than a sum of their parts.

Duncan Campbell and Charlotte Rey met in Paris while working together on Acne Paper. As a natural evolution of their widely respected work for this award-winning fashion publication, they were asked to consult on various projects and founded their own agency, Campbell–Rey, in 2013. Their work spans the worlds of brand development, design, curation, and image making, and is united by their sensitive approach and classical, elegant aesthetic. Campbell and Rey share a particular interest in heritage brands, craftsmanship, and how traditional techniques are more relevant than ever in today’s crowded marketplace.
