ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the working conditions in manufacturing units and raises a question about whether the products are manufactured in a manner that enhances the self esteem of the craftsman. In manufacturing factories, white smoke that engulfs the facility probably isn't in the consumer's minds. It must become greatest priority to persuade the Great Britain's consumer that they should pay a fair price for a beautifully designed, hand crafted product that embodies the maker and the maker's culture forever, no matter where in the world that piece is made. There are some excellent schemes being set up under the auspices of the United Nations Charter on sustainability.
