There is a marked difference between artisanal goods that are made by hand and mass produced products. The quality is like comparing apples to caviar, centuries ago everything was made by master craftsmen with authentic materials. A far cry from today’s mass production factories, in the 19th century, for example, bespoke goods were made-to-order and exquisitely fashioned to the client’s requests.
