Poppycock. "inspected, pressed, folded and packaged by hand" is certainly NOT "hand-made." Indeed, my laundry is "inspected, pressed, folded and packaged by hand" yet there is no claim of "hand-washing."

The term "handmade" is generally used for hand-guided and man-operated machinery as opposed to laser or computer guided production methods.

What term would be used then for what we on the forum "generally" regard as handmade, i.e hand cut/stitched etc.?
