durability is always taken into consideration when selecting material, re - using, recycling, upcycling, repairing are first choice when possible. you'll find everything you want to know about the origin of your product in its description.
there's one, often overlooked, step after breaking something, before throwing it out : making an attempt to repair ! not everything is repairable, but wouldn't it be nice if we could at least try with traditional craft, new techniques or creative solutions ?
