February is Handmade Here month on OhMy! Handmade Goodness. Our editor Jessika asked contributors for articles, interviews, gallery tours and inspiration about things that are made locally by hand. Contributors to OhMy! are scattered all over the world which will make for some wonderful stories.
Last Thursday I got on my bike and toured the small town where I live snapping pictures of local towel 'factories'. Towels are not quite handmade anymore but I think you'll find the history of the senshu towel interesting. Plus there's a chance to win the two towels pictured here on the bottom right. I had a lovely chat to the woman at the shop about them.
