Over time I've come to know several companies that gladly veer towards more artisanal production techniques. I've run into fabric suppliers that embrace old technologies and the imperfections that result as genuine and valuable. Or brands like Crociani that declare on their hangtags something along the lines of: "This garment is handmade; any dye or construction imperfections should be regarded as an added value..."
I've always wondered if companies use this as an excuse to sell faulty fabric, or whether the market appreciates the imperfections that result from artisinal processes.
Personally I love imperfections. I feel that they do indeed add value to the garment in that it becomes a truly unique item that only I have, with a little bit more spirit or "raison d'etre". As long as the garment is sewn with care and shows a good construction quality.
What do you guys think?
