Paper flowers, paper flowers: the handmade of the 21st century
If in the 80s the Handmade it was a custom in homes, handed down from the post-war generation in order to save on monthly payments, today handmade is a real trend.
A very clear memory, linked to my childhood, is that of my mother bent over a table to sew a dress ceremony . Whenever my family and I were invited to a marriage , my mother sewed the dress for her and me. We went together to buy the paper pattern magazine “Burda” and then once we had chosen the model to make, we went to buy the fabric. In the mid-90s, mass marketing at a good price increasingly took hold, making all handmade products disappear.
In the 21st century, driven by the economic crisis and the great awareness of the environment, the desire to “reinvent oneself” (Italian specialty) has grown, bringing with it the rebirth of craftsmanship. The handmade has taken off again, making the sector grow paper flowers , called in America “paper flowers” (at the end of the article, in addition to the videos, you will find a tutorial on how to make paper flowers ).
