Some products can be made quickly by a machine. Other items take a long time to be made by hand. As a buyer, which do you prefer and why? Give specific details and examples in your answer.

Ever since the industrial revolution,
mass
produced goods have flooded the consumer market.
Although
such
goods
have proved

have proven
to be highly popular, it is now becoming increasingly clear that handmade goods are more desirable for modern, informed consumers. In
this
essay, I shall look at some of the ethical and quality-based reasons for
this
re-evaluation.
To begin
with, handmade goods can be made with far more care and attention to detail than
mass
produced goods.
This
is because

the machines

that experienced craftsman evidently possess.
For example
, a study by the International Consumerist Society found that handmade furniture, musical instruments and jewellery were consistently rated as being more attractive (by consumers) than their
mass
made counterparts.
Therefore it

Therefore, it
is clear that buyers prefer handmade goods for reasons that relate to quality of workmanship.
Secondly
, handmade
production
companies have far more ethical attitudes towards the environment.
This
is because factories and chemical processes heavily underpin
mass
industrial
production
.
For example
the British Green Party found that the levels of toxicity and environmental damage outside handmade
production
centres were paltry compared to the levels found outside factories used for
mass
production
.
Consequently
, since modern consumers are more environmentally conscious than ever before, these findings have clearly contributed to their preference for handmade goods. In conclusion, there are compelling reasons for why modern consumers favour handmade goods. In the future, as environmental issues worsen,
this
preference will no doubt grow more pronounced.
