Drive and motivation

What drives me to persue the learning of old crafts like tanning, leather craft, braiding, rawhide craft and hand-sewing?
The possibility of making my own clothes and useful items with complete control of all substances used in the hole chain from raw material n finished product. This is can emancipation from the dependency on the industrial production of clothes and accessories.
With rawhide, leather, fur and small amounts of fabric you can make virtually anything your body needs to survive in a temperate climate.
The only thing needed besides the above is KNOWLEDGE. That you can find in a wealth of books and brains around the planet but you have to dedicate time and energy to successfully acquire it.
