4. Support Local Businesses: Buying handcrafted supports local busniess owners and crafters. It enables you to purchase items made in a prefered location. If you prefer items made in the USA, you can search for items with that preference.
5. Non-massproduced: Most handcrafted items are not produced on a mass scale. Handcrafted items have a higher product quality due to detailed hand creation.
6. Slave Free / Fair Labour Wage Practices / Safe Working Conditions: Expanding on the topic of massproduced items, most handcrafted items come from Slave Free, Fair Labour Wage Practices, and Safe Working Condition enviornments. That means no child labour or illegal labour was used in the making of your product.
