Adding a modern touch to our lifestyle is great and probably necessary, but there’s a different charm in blending vintage looks with the style of today. Times are changing and everything around us is evolving. It is important to be a part of that change because there’s no other way to grow. Exploring new designs and techniques across industries shows the great passion of the human race. This doesn’t mean that we wipe off history completely. We have developed because of the skill, innovation and persistence of our ancestors, and it is only fair for the past to be sewn into the present if we want to build a stronger tomorrow.
