The word Luddite refers to a movement in the early nineteenth century by a group
of British textile artists who protested the changes brought to their industry by
the Industrial Revolution, often they destroyed mechanical looms, which they felt
were taking work away from themselves. Subsequently the word has come to mean
someone who is against technology and prefers to do things the old fashioned way.
The items in this collection are inspired by this idea of turning back the clock and
focusing on a simpler way of living.
