For you regular viewers of the blog you know that I am all about handmade goods. Occasionally while I'm scouring the interweb looking for interesting, unusual things for you to peep I come across something special. This Modern Artisans video featuring the shoe making skills of Sebastian Tarek struck me as something worth a solid look.
There is value beyond the mere monetary purchase of a handmade item, in this case shoes. Quality, handmade goods take on a soul, a piece of the craftsman that made them and a piece of the person that cherishes them. Fathoms away from the assembly lines of over produced under constructed shoes, Sebastian Tarek's handmade footwear finds a warm home in today's modern closet.
