The oldest craft in the world is probably basket weaving, but sewing comes as a close second. But at one point in history, some absolute genius, whose name we’ll never know, decided, “You know what? I’ll make this piece of fur rock. I’ll be the hottest person in this cave, and that’s it.” And thanks to her, we now can create gorgeous looks in our own little caves, and some people are incredibly good at it.
