When everybody knows, there is no need to write it down.

In the past, knowledge of noble materials and how they were best used was passed down from generation to generation of craftsmen. Today, there are still some producers who remain connected to basic materials and craft knowledge from the past, and who aim to work together across disciplines, to find a better way forward.
