Why buy from designer-makers?

Our Maker Difference campaign launched in 2009 and explored some of the broader benefits (to people and planet) of buying hand-crafted work. The campaign generated a huge buzz and over 12,000 people registered their support. Our Maker Difference Manifesto remains just as relevant today.
