HÅNDVÆRK bookazine highlights the connection between sustainable and durable practices and a fundamental grasp of materials and artisanal techniques.

Or maybe best said by a reader:

"HÅNDVÆRK contains timeless themes that bridge the past, ourselves, and the future.
It offers an immersive experience without any undertone of lecturing.
Rigetta Klint frames the stories in a way that makes them accessible to everyone.

HÅNDVÆRK invites the readers on a journey that provides a growing understanding
and appreciation of all the design and craft objects that surround us.
Things and processes which are otherwise often taken for granted are explored and revealed.
Through her stories and photographs, the invisible becomes clear.

I am left with a feeling of great humility towards the insights I have gained."

About HÅNDVÆRK

The independent HÅNDVÆRK bookazine is made by designer, writer, and photographer Rigetta Klint. She worked professionally with crafts and design for more than 30 years, originally as a practising designer and for the past 15 years as a brand consultant, writer, and photographer.

From editors' letter HÅNDVÆRK bookazine no. 6:

"Many years ago, when I was working as a fashion designer, we called natural resources ‘materials’.
Materials were natural resources combined with energy and manpower.

In my case, the materials were consistently top quality and thus durable and worth the effort.
However, that does not change the fact that my point of view
was product durability in relation to the retail
price
– not in relation to the price the planet paid for the production.

After changing my perspective and talking about resources instead of materials,
I find that my own attitude
about virtually all forms of consumption is changing;
I am developing a deeper awareness.

This awareness of the resources required to make a given product
reminds me to ask myself whether it is really
worth it!"
