Crafts and traditional knowledge of mindful consumption of natural resources are one of the possible starting points for (re)questioning paths and directions of envisioning contemporary sustainable production processes. Understanding of new technologies, materials and systems is as important as the knowledge of what is inherited on a local scale. Traditional, old, and endangered practices are a subject of heritage institution, that collect and document, but rarely place, them for interpretation outside of the set parameters of historical valorization. Can this knowledge be used for crafting an optimistic future? How and why do we imagine the tomorrow, and do we?
