8 Good reasons to choose an artisan product 

Discover all the advantages of an artisanal product. Let yourself be conquered by the beauty of craftsmanship

At Ad Hoc Atelier you can find a selection of handmade products, representing the best of handmade fashion made in Italy. Our mission is to find all over Italy the best craft realities, check the quality of products and select the best creations.

Every week we meet dozens of artisans, we let them tell us their stories and we personally check the quality of the products, to ensure that each product within Ad Hoc Atelier is of the highest quality. But why would you prefer an artisan product over someone cheaper? We have chosen 8 reasons for you:

1. Artisan products are unique

Each handmade artisan product is unique and original, ideal for stepping out of the crowd, standing out and having something special. The artisans on our platform create each piece by hand, checking every single seam and material used. In addition, although they all have a very high quality, each piece created is different from the other. Each creation thus becomes unique, special and non-repeatable. 

2. They are of high quality

Handmade crafts are made to last, the higher initial price is repaid by the durability. In fact, these products guarantee a very high quality of materials and production. Whoever decides to buy this type of goods is sure that the garments will last over time, so the expense is surely amortized over the years. Obviously then there is also an ecological discourse, but we will talk about it in point 4!

3. Handmade goods are ethical

All the realities present on our platform are distinguished by an ethical and sustainable production. You can know the entire supply chain of each product, starting from the procurement of materials to the entire production cycle.

Our artisanal brands are transparent about their entire production, which is not the case for big brands. In fact, often the products of multinationals exploit workers, sometimes child labor; a product made by an artisan has a higher cost because it respects labor and workers, guaranteeing honest and dignified conditions to its employees. 

4. They are sustainable

An artisanal product is most likely more sustainable than an industrial one. With very few exceptions, artisanal brands are transparent about the entire production cycle. Often they are made with recycled objects; and they are all zero km products because they are local.

Artisans source their raw materials locally, thus managing to reduce C02 emissions resulting from the transport of materials. In fact, the raw materials do not come from the other side of the world! In addition, the products often last longer, reducing waste.

Finally, we collaborate with craftsmen who reduce collections to a minimum. This drastically reduces waste of both fabric and electricity, ensuring more sustainable production.

5. Artisan goods are made with love

Each project is made with passion, and each product carries with it the serenity and harmony of those who made it: it is more than an object! Each product contains all the passion and research of those who created it. The artisans are bearers of centuries-old traditions: most of our brands are real local institutions, realities that are handed down from father to son with their secrets. For this reason, handmade gifts are always the most popular idea.

6. Artisans are creative

Handcrafted creations are the result of a creative process. They often have an indissoluble link with the territory. Moreover, the items encapsulate local traditions and cultures, making the creations unique and fascinating. Each handcrafted item can be an inspiration to anyone, triggering positive and proactive thinking in a chain.

7. Handmade items are personal

Each object contains its own history and the history of those who made it, traditions and art. It has a value that goes beyond the object itself. By purchasing an artisan product, you can get closer to the places and the wonderful stories of the artisans, who often have anecdotes and traditions that deserve to be known. 

8. Artisan creations are precious

The handmade creations are often true works of art and ingenuity, transmit the values that our society is losing. Today, in fact, there is a predominance of realities that produce at the speed of light, with continuous new collections. Thus we lose the attachment to objects and productions of quality, which deserve to be experienced and reused several times.

Conclusions

We have seen how many benefits handmade items can have. An artisanal product is unique and sustainable, therefore it is a perfect gift for oneself and for others. The only difficulty is finding the craftsmen. in fact today more and more artisan businesses are forced to close, due to increasingly overwhelming competition. 

In addition, sales have evolved, and are increasingly happening on new channels. Most of the artisans have a very traditional trading system, which involves direct sales in the shop. Suffice it to say that in Italy, less than 20% of artisans have an online site.

For this reason, Ad Hoc Atelier was born, the first online marketplace dedicated to handmade fashion made in Italy. Ad Hoc Atelier finds the best Italian artisans and designers, and allows them to be available all over the world with a simple click. In this way, the enormous value of made in Italy creations is preserved, and consumers all over the world can benefit from handmade creations of unparalleled value.
