The video presents the sustainable crafts of Linida Design and Ed’s Craft. Both these entrepreneurs produce products made to order, taking their customers’ wishes into account. The interaction between the maker and customer generates a product that is touching and meaningful and stands the test of time – even for the next generation.
The video was written and shot by Taina Saha from Dafecor Oy and its soundtrack was created by Pore Oy. It is produced by the Finnish Crafts Organization Taito.
The Finnish Crafts Organization grants the national Taito Award of €6000 every second year. The Taito award is donated by the Tapiola Group. The purpose of the award is to make the public aware of excellent crafts enterprises and to show that devotion to skill gives impetus to success.
