In a world where a garment is cheaper than a sandwich, I wonder what the value of an old sewing machine would be.
We are swift consumers in a world of speed and consumption, especially fashionwise but not only. We see an outfit, we want it, we get it, we use it, and we throw it away to make room for another one with most likely a seemingly short-lived destiny. But let’s not be consumed with guilt over it. We were born into this. This speediness was not of our own making. We merely inherited it and took it to perfection. For this we ought to feel a slight remorse, it is true.
