new age - a broad movement characterized by alternative approaches to traditional Western culture

artisan - a worker in a skilled trade, especially one that involves making things by hand.

in a world where machines make everything and cars drive themselves a need for authentic, original, and hand-made products has never been greater. throughout the centuries artisans crafted by hand because they had to, new age artisans craft by hand because they want to. their craft provides an escape from the unoriginal, a foray into the unique, and an avenue of self definition. the field of new age artisans is constantly growing, they're not only craftsman and cobblers, they're creators, makers, and imaginers. in a world of replication and mass production, new age artisans emerge to construct and design original, authentic, products.
