April 29 makes us witness a unique NFT collection brought by Carved, a company specializing in the design and manufacturing of handcrafted accessories. A series of 100 1/1 NFTs will offer its buyers an accompanying hand-made tiles as part of the purchase.
Carved is a prominent example of how traditional businesses embrace new technology within the creative field. The company is running a successful business for over ten years now, with its operations at a 100-year-old dress factory in Elkhart, Indiana. And yet, nothing held it back from taking the risk of experimenting with a new product; the team dedicated three months to understanding and learning solidity and Web 3 to prepare the Tile collection. “There was no outsourcing, no external development, nothing. That’s how invested we are in this. Hopefully, the community will enjoy what we put together, and no less important, how we chose to do so,” comments John Webber, Carved Founder.
