Forword: Our lust for acquisition has resulted from our insatiable appetite for more commodities.  All we desire within our reach and never fully in our grasp; the shopper forever on the hunt. The beautiful item sits so radiantly on the shelf, perfect and pure. Forbid those that mention the hands that made such a thing. Perhaps we don’t want to know as the truth may destroy our desire. Disconnection from the fundamental human need to make, sell and buy garments is ever present as the shop window shrinks to the size of a computer screen. Shopping, an activity that once empowered cities and humanity to thrive is dissolved into dust.
