Although plugs are used every minute of every day, they are something that is often taken for granted, but the 'Handmade For The Industry' project hopes to change that. This project is made up of handcrafted electrical plugs and outlets that give them a more unique and meaningful presence in people's lives.

Conceived by Dutch designer Dave Hakkens, the Handmade For The Industry project was created out of his desire to give these essential daily tools more value. Instead of throwing away plugs when they stop working or start looking very dingy, they can be replaced with these parts, which are easily attachable and detachable. This feature makes these products eco-friendly and sustainable as well.
