DIY Techcessorizing

Consumers customize technology with fashionable homemade accoutrements

Implications - Technology, however customizable with apps and features, remains relatively androgynous, which is why fashion-conscious DIYers are opting to outfit devices in a personal way that expresses both their fashion sense and DIY prowess. A resonating dissatisfaction with options within the accessories market is one of the driving forces behind the push towards more homemade items as well as a jumping off point for younger DIYers looking to start expanding horizons on a more manageable scale.
