It made handwork not only unnecessary in many areas, but also eliminated

Our surroundings were no longer characterized by our individual handiwork, but by the achievements of an impersonal fabrication
which does not reflect our traditional cultural values.
In contrast to this unhappy condition the rising popularity of handicrafts and hobby activities is extremely promising.
