The American Arts & Crafts movement developed in a response to the negative side effects of America’s industrial revolution of the early 1900’s. The Arts & Crafts movement extolled the greater societal benefits of producing goods by the hands of skilled craftsman as had been done for centuries over the pure economic benefits that factory automation and mass production brought to a select few. Over a hundred years later, I think that it is safe to say that the country continues to wrestle with these same concerns. If anything, the issue has become more complicated with increased globalization of production and concerns about the environment.
