Perhaps the beautiful sound of the word "good old days" evokes a sense of a uniquely soft mood and neutrality, perhaps because it evokes an attitude of looking at things and eras from a bygone era with an emotional gaze. On the other hand, such a nostalgic gaze also seems to include a rejection of change, as if it would have been better if the old things remained as they were.

Another important creator for us has closed the curtain on its long history. At this time, I thought about the harmful effects of the word "good old" and the importance of continuing to exist.

The old machines that are now precious are still in operation, and the threads and fabrics produced by them. There is no doubt that it will never be possible to achieve this by reinventing everything or thinking about prioritizing efficiency.

Things that don't change, things that don't evolve. Leaving the good old things as they are. While this gives us a certain sense of security that what we have seen and what we are used to has always existed, it also brings with it the boredom and inconvenience of not changing.

In order to prevent this from happening, we must carefully extract only the splendor of oldness and the goodness of inefficiency, reconsider everything surrounding it one by one, and have an attitude of not being afraid to evolve and change. An inquisitive mind is essential. Consider that maintaining the status quo is now degeneracy.

What once existed, where it was made, and the technology it needed. And the place that provided it. When all of this is lost, people may feel heartbroken, regretful, and even filled with sadness. However, contrary to such temporary feelings, as time passes, people forget that they ever existed. Even after they are forgotten, life in the world continues to move on.

That is why the very fact that it continues to exist may be so important that nothing else can replace it.
