Summary
In a world full of mass production and copyright infringement, there is a movement emerging that is focused on sourcing unique and independently created products that are made to last. This title is a celebration of these unique products and the tradespeople behind their creation.

Made to Last showcases some of the weird and wonderful products being created today - from whiskey tumblers to mushroom knives, men's shoes and bamboo bikes - with profiles of their makers and related DIY projects that invite readers to act on their inspiration and get making themselves. These DIY suggestions are as varied as the products themselves, from how to treat and care for wood furniture to making your own canvas lunch bag. The book's own beautiful design ensures that it, too, is truly made to last.
