In the past years where owning a Nature Aquarium is populair by aquarium enthousiasts all over the world, there are aquarium stores with a large range of aquarium products. The most products are cheap, affordable plastic items. Plastic products are a symbol of mass production and mass consumption. The feeling of plastic (throw away) materials is in contrast with the natural, delicate feeling of a Nature Aquarium. ADA hopes the users of Nature Aquarium Goods share this thought and will use products that are made for long term use. That is the reason why ADA has been focusing on "hand-made" products since the beginning. Glass and stainless steel products, wich are carefully manufactured by the most skillfull craftsmen. They give a warm, good feeling to the hand-made products. Glass products for instance, has the same clarity as water and has nice curves. No seems as in plastic where malls are used. The round form and subtle bends are made by the craftsman! When we take a closer look at the glassware, we see every piece is uniek and has a slightly different shape. This difference is not the result of rough treatment, but the result of slighty different forces applied by the bending or glasblowing process. This characteristic gives the products its unique look & feel that no other plastic product can achieve. In the end the thoughts of the user and the characteristics of the hand-made products will be the only logical choice possible for a long term usage. In this consumption society full of "throw-away" products, we should cherisch the values of products that can be used for many years.
