Istoria Manifesto

We believe in the beauty of creating–that there is joy in toil andgratitude for fleeting moments of effortless inspiration. We believe there is peace in the knowledge perfection is a destination not required but lovingly pursued. We relish the gift of a challenge. We believe in doing less, but better. We believe we can do anything, but not everything.
