We have now embraced a new romantic era where we crave all things that are rough hewn, a giant leap back to nature. Not only are we reclaiming distressed materials but the most desired items are in their most primitive, raw state.
Is all of this current fascination with radical rawness a retreat to the comfort of handmade, pure and artisinal? Is it a diametrical opposition to the fast-paced, technology obsessed and interconnected world we presently live in?
What are your thoughts?
