“Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day; teach him how to fish and he can eat for a lifetime.” This Chinese proverb is the best answer for why we need to patronize handmade products which are made by mom and pop manufacturers.

The “tender loving care” their products are made, also often manifests in the products’ appearance. More often than not, gifts from mom and pop manufacturers are very well-crafted, very intricate, and very meticulously-made. It’s because products made by this kind of manufacturers are checked by none other the owners of the business themselves.
