A brief exploration of Industrialism
and Craft Identity

Existing as a rejection of the industrialized, maximalist Victorian style, the Craftsman homes of the 1910s’ & teens placed an emphasis on locally sources, handcrafted materials and objects- with the goal of creating a livable craft object.

When the style was popular, and as it declined, manufacturers of Kit Homes, most noteably Sears Roebuck, of the great Sears catalog; rushed in- stealing features of the livable Craft objects
(Craftsman homes) to implement within their own designs. 

Many Craftsmen homes are lost to time, but their features can still be seen in the abundance of remaining Kit Homes across the United States.
