People always manufactured tools. From the 5th century A.D., the evolution of the most well-known tools had already been largely achieved. Until the late 19th century, people mostly manufactured their own tools. Each tool had its own personality and its own functional and aesthetic requirements. Every tool had special decoration and different shape and weight.
The art of tool making stopped in the late 19th century and the tools began to be produced more massively, with the use of molds. In the same period of time, machines were introduced in the production of tools. Similar artifacts, like the sock needle, are known to have originated in the Ionian Islands, probably as accessories of traditional local women’s costumes.
