Bespoke is a term not generally used in the US but it’s gaining in popularity as Americans are always looking for new ways to infuse a sense of class and exclusiveness into a product.
In the UK the bespoke garment industry is famous worldwide and sits opposite of mass manufacturing as seen in Asia and South America. The kitchen industry has split as well especially among kitchen furniture makers, some of whom create custom AKA bespoke cabinetry while large retailers are delivering flat pack kitchens that can be built and installed to your specs.
We’re hoping the bespoke kitchen movement continues to thrive and the individual craftsman can maintain a healthy living. We need creative people to continue the trade so we all don’t feel resigned to seeing and choosing the latest from IKEA.
