On Trend 2023: Handmade

What’s right now? Because the world changes so quickly, that question burns in our minds regularly. As humans, we live through our senses, and part of the answer involves art and design that soothes us, supports us, and delights us. We need that nourishment to face the challenges of our time, at home and in society at large. TABLE Magazine looks at fall and winter trends in art, craft, and design that are just right for our lives in 2023, like handmade goods.

High Touch

Garments finished by an artist’s or artisan’s hands carry skill and talent into your wardrobe. Each one is unique. Each one expresses an artistic vision a little differently. Each one brings something special to you, the wearer.
