Samantha Zobrist told that the old styles are back and alive in the young generation. She loves to go to antique shops and finding things which have been cherished and loved; versus searching something which has been made cheaply overseas which anyone can go out and purchase for a few rupees which will be tomorrow’s garbage right away.

She told that before people had Facebook and smartphones, people used to sit in the evening and did embroidery and did fine hand stitched clothing.
