Ironically, as much as everything is made in "China", one of the problems that consumers unknowingly create is our demand for consistency in the products we purchase. Because we demand everything to look the same, to look and function perfectly, handmade products by default become manufacturing liabilities. You can't charge the mass market $300 for crudely made handmade shoes. You can only charge that amount if your bag looks as good as it does in the photoshopped ad and you sincerely believe you are either paying for a brand name or quality! It's difficult to respect and recognize craft when society tells us that everything should look and be the same; which is obviously the downfall of many trades. Or maybe that someone elses' hands in another part of the world is worth less ( or more ) than mine.
