The Benefits of Choosing Handmade Products

When you hear the word “handmade”, the product in question is automatically given a higher status due to the connotation of care that come with crafting something by hand. This is true in most cases, and certainly regarding products such as our handmade valet trays, watch boxes, and travel cases. Handmade means products that have been handcrafted by experts in their field. 

At Transform, we pride ourselves on our handmade watch boxes and men’s accessory storage. We understand the difference a handmade product makes in terms of quality and being environmentally friendly, amongst other reasons. To find out more about our fantastic range of men’s watch storage, get in touch with our team – we’re more than happy to answer any questions about the products we’re proud of. 

In today’s article, we’re looking into the benefits of choosing handmade products. But first, what counts as a handmade product? 

 

The Advantages of Handmade Products 

There’s nothing but advantages when choosing handmade products either for yourself or as a gift. Let’s take a look: 

  • Popular. Handmade items are on-trend at the minute. Since the pandemic, there has been a huge celebration of craftsmen and a rise in appreciation for skilled workers. There has been an increase in people shopping locally from small businesses, and many are turning away from fast fashion, big corporations, and mass production. This is brilliant for people like us here at Transform, who pride themselves on our handmade men’s accessory storage. 
  • Great for supporting skilled workers. By supporting those that provide handcrafted products, you’re keeping skilled workers employed. Often, people with skill sets such as wood carving technicians and metalworkers go underappreciated. As mentioned, this has recently changed, so it’s important to continue your support for those with unique (and very impressive) skills. 
  • Unique. It’s in their name – mass-produced products are all the same. One item is created and duplicated on a large scale to feed the demand. When you opt for a handmade item, you are receiving not just quality but something truly unique. Why not add to this and choose our personalised plates for your watch box or valet tray? In a choice of silver or gold, these plates add a sentimental touch and make for the perfect gift. 
  • They are built to last. Our wooden and leather watch boxes are made to withstand the test of time, so you’ll only need to repurchase when you come back to get one for all your friends and family. Choosing handmade means you know that care has been taken at every step of its journey, from the idea right through to it being delivered to your door.

Why Handmade Products Make the Perfect Gift 

Choosing to buy a handmade product is a great idea for the reasons discussed above but purchasing a handmade item to give to a loved one as a gift brings its own array of additional benefits. Let’s explore why opting to buy someone a handmade product for their birthday, Christmas, or other celebration is beneficial for both you and the recipient: 

  • It shows that you care. By gifting someone with a handmade item, you show you have put thought into their present by demonstrating you understand all the positive reasons for buying handmade like those explained above. It also shows that you care enough about them that you would gift them with something that very few other people own, rather that something from a high street store or supermarket that potentially millions of others will have. 
  • Customisation options. A lot of the time, you can customise handmade items as you have direct contact with the makers. In Transform’s case, you can add a silver or gold name plate to our men’s accessory storage, which, as mentioned, adds a sentimental touch, and is guaranteed to put a smile on the recipient’s face. 
  • Each item has a story. Here at Transform, we are proud of our story. By choosing us as your handmade watch box retailer, you are choosing to support us on our journey in providing the best handmade watch boxes and men’s accessory storage on the market.
