Machine-made refers to the things that are produced by machines. Its antonyms or opposite are handmade and handcrafted which are made by hands without the use of machines. Handmade products are unique and individualized whereas machine-made products are usually mass-produced, standard and uniform. Handcrafted items are more expensive than machine-made products because they are made in limited quantities and are usually of better quality. Handcrafted items involve the personal touch, precision and creativity of the artisans, making them distinct from any other products. Thus, handmade and handcrafted products carry more value and are more appealing to those who value authenticity and uniqueness.
