Craftsmanship is not just for product creators

The level of attention paid to a product or service is often higher when the assembly line is absent, and right or wrong, it is increasingly more appealing to many people in the West.

But what exactly is craftsmanship in the modern era? It isn’t cobbling or blacksmithing, it is much more nuanced, and has changed a bit in recent years with the advent of technology, but every industry can improve by adopting a more artisan-like attitude and strategy.
