The Arts & Crafts movement was a direct response to the industrialization of the Victorian era and also to the excess of it. Rooted in the past, the look was cleaner, and less cluttered. The over abundance of the Victoian era gave way to a cleaner, simpler look. Not advocating a particular style, the movement placed emphasis
on craftsmanship, rather than what the industialized, mechanized world was providing. It also emphasized better work place enviornment. It was as much a political reformation as decorative one.
Though it started in England, it soon spread to other
parts of the world, and craftsman communitees were started where craftsman could work and live in an environment in keeping with the political and social ideals. Architectual buildings such as bunglalow style houses and Frank Loyd Wright were rooted in this movement, which influenced every part of a home- from pottery, door handles, linens, furniture, etc.
