Date: 2015

Could we stop buying x and start making x ourselves? What would be the outcome? Can we solve problems by rediscovering the past? What are the obstacles? Is it a dream?

Visits to local craftsmen and -women in Turkey. Small shops, closely connected to the neighbourhood, living parts of people’s everyday life. Crafts produced to be sold or for own use within the family.
