1. Every Leica lens is hand-crafted and goes through meticulous manufacturing processes to uphold the quality and precision that Leica defines and customers have come to expect. In the age where technology almost inevitably means mass manufacturing, Leica products are still made with exacting precision by the hands of highly-trained technicians.

    This video gives you a behind-the-scenes look at the craftsmanship and making of Leica lenses in the production facilities of Leica Camera AG.

  2. The setting was already intriguing. A Greek from Pontus, living in Athens is a luthier of some of the best Spanish guitars. His name is Vassilis and he is not only an accomplished luthier but also a charming human. We spend 3 days with him in his small and packed lab in Athens, where we learned a lot, laughed a lot and in general had a great time. The end result combined with the music of Edstard left everyone more than satisfied.

  4. A project from bureauofcommongoods.com, Made by Hand is a new short film series celebrating the people who make things by hand—sustainably, locally, and with a love for their craft.

    In our second film, we meet writer turned knife maker Joel Bukiewicz of Cut Brooklyn. He talks about the human element of craft, and the potential for a skill to mature into an art. And in sharing his story, he alights on the real meaning of handmade—a movement whose riches are measured in people, not cash.
