1. Harking back to a time when handmade was the "norm" and the work was appreciated because people saw the time that went into it.
2. The classic techniques that have been handed down through the generations
3. Beautiful patterns, styling and decal are preserved and used in new ways.
I've been really inspired too by some of the fabulous makers on Folksy who are also inspired by vintage:
Imogen's Imagination have this beautiful Deco inspired beret, which has been featured in Vogue:
