The value of Craftsmanship

His name is Geoffrey Franklin and with his Walnut Studiolo he makes wood and leather bicycle accessories by hand. I am actually not a huge fan of his creations as final products. I don’t own a bicycle either (ok I do, but I almost never use it) but I really appreciate people that create things with their hands. People that take raw materials, change them, process them and putting lot of effort and inspiration on them. No matter if this is for leather bicycle accessories or a custom made experimental plane engine. It’s all about the people and the creation process! And honestly we have to elevate them at the “ranks” of humanity. I am bored of watching singers and useless TV personalities being the love models of our society. So… in this video, Mr Franklin shares thoughts on the design process and explains what it really means for something to be handmade
