Wabi Sabi is the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfection. Instead of shunning decay from time, weather, love and age, it celebrates it. And for a vintage fashionista, that means learning to embrace frayed edges, subtle color fading, minor snags and other imperfections.
How wonderful. It also describes how I feel about handmade clothes. I love the little imperfections that somehow hold some of the essence of the person who made them.
