I Danmark har vi en lang tradition for design og håndværk. En tradition, hvor kompetente håndværkere, enten selv eller i et samarbejde med designere og arkitekter, har udviklet og produceret. Møbelbranchen er et godt eksempel. Den har taget udgangspunkt i lige dele håndværksmæssig kunnen og lige dele formsans. Et lykkeligt og respektfuldt parløb om at skabe det perfekte. En tradition, som de fleste forbinder med dansk møbelkunsts storhedstid og med de ikoniske og eftertragtede møbler fra 50’erne og 60’erne. Siden 1960’erne har der været mere fokus på formgivning end på håndværk, og det har i en lang periode været mere prestigefuldt at være designer end at være snedker. For en periode blev håndværksfagene fravalgt af de kreative og visionære, men sådan er det ikke længere. Håndværk er en hyldest til den udvikling. Bogen portrætterer 15 unge og deres virksomheder. Rigetta Klint har over en længere periode fulgt håndværkerne og deres familier. Hun har besøgt deres hjem og deres arbejdsplads. Håndværk handler om faglig stolthed. Bogen fokuserer ikke kun på slutprodukterne, men lige så meget på proces, materialer, værktøj og på de mennesker, som står bag, og de livsstilsvalg, de har truffet. I få, men velvalgte, ord og i mange mange billeder beskriver hun deres passion, deres produkt og deres tanker om livet. Derudover taler hun med håndværkerne om, hvad de tænker om fremtiden for deres egen virksomhed og for deres fag. Mange af de portrætterede håndværkere håndterer hele deres produktion selv, andre bruger deres håndværk til at kunne lave prototyper, som siden hen produceres hel- eller halvindustrielt. Fælles for dem er passionen. Selv om mange af dem arbejder langt mere end 40 timer om ugen, oplever de stor frihed, og de oplever at have et sammenhængende liv. Om forfatteren Rigetta Klint har i mere end 30 år arbejdet med kunsthåndværk og design som sit udgangspunkt. Tidligere som designer og nu, de seneste 10 år, som stylist, fotograf, skribent og branding--ekspert. Rigetta er en passioneret historiefortæller, og hendes stil er ”ro for øjet”, hvad enten hun formidler mennesker, mad, mode eller interiør.
