“It’s not just a way to make money; it’s a big school of life,” says Maria Solovey (@maria_solovey) from Abinsk, Russia. She and her husband wanted to work with their hands outside of their full-time jobs and decided to build a leather and textile workshop. “We always dreamed of a family business, where we could hand down our traditions,” says Maria, who does her best to stay present every time she creates something new: “I’m inspired by the calm happiness that comes from hard work and when you’re able to experience the process — not just chasing the final product.”
