All of our rushing around – trying to squeeze 28 hours into the day - may explain why we are so drawn to handmade, artisanal products. As illustration, Etsy sold $1.85 billion of handmade goods in 2013. It just feels soothing to turn to beautiful things that have a personal touch; timeless products made in traditional ways.
I love it when someone says “I love your patterns! They remind me of ….” Nostalgia. Affectionate memories. Happy associations.
I scuba-dived all over the world for years, and never lost the dream of seeing a real mermaid. Seeing mermaids (and mermen) on sheets always brings a smile.
Trekatte patterns bring happy associations. Memories that don’t fade with repeated washings.
