FEMALE CRAFTMANSHIP

It is very nice to see that these young women are still passionate about sewing. I only sew with needle and thread, so as not to consume electricity, and for me it is just a hobby, I only make bags, because I am not able to make clothes. I believe that women’s craftsmanship is very important and it would be very nice if they taught it in schools, both to boys and girls.
I admire people who sew clothes. I recently noticed that the clothes that the shops sell are low in residue and of poor quality. After a few washes they become very bad and come off immediately. Even branded clothes and bags are badly sewn, they become horrible, misshapen and the zippers are destroyed quickly. We can only see beautiful clothes at fashion shows and in designer shops. So fashion is only for a very wealthy group of people. I find it nice to be able to create clothes by yourself and to be able to choose but now there are not many fabrics. The Italian textile industry is in crisis and unfortunately from China and India no longer beautiful fabrics arrive but poor materials. So there are no fabric shops either. My mother bought many fabrics to sew beautiful clothes for clients and for us daughters. I think it's nice to be able to sew baby clothes too or sew dolls to give to poor children.
There are a lot of people who sew, who knit, crochet, who do patchwork and macrame and embroidery. All of these people need to be valued. So we look for their creations on the sites and buy beautiful things created by people who have a lot of imagination and the patience to create masterpieces.
I am an animal activist and I don’t buy real leather bags or even leather shoes. I love cloth bags and cloth shoes. I believe we have to protect the calves and all the animals that are killed for their skins and furs. I don’t like furs and I don’t like animals being killed for fashion reasons.
