The products are great. Definitely top quality. The sweaters take about 90 hours each and are all hand knitted and signed by the person who made them. They are quite heavy. I didn't really realize, but the company is alive due to Japan - Beams have been huge supporters among other specialty shops. The prices over there are about 30-40% higher than ours though. We'll have enough hats for everyone next fall!
The 90 hours bit may not make sense from an hourly wage perspective, but if the knitters are getting paid on a piece by piece basis (say, $50 - $100 per completed piece), not hourly, by people for whom knitting is like second nature (the kind of people who can probably knit and read a book at the same time and who would be knitting whether they get pair or not), I don't really see a problem with the 90 hour bit.
