there's something to be said here about the desire for handcrafted products to closely resemble machine made ones.
@dragon We think there's a difference in the kind of imperfections that machines make versus what people who make things with their hands make. That is, that machines won't give a shit about fatal, critical breakages, but people, almost always, do.
@dragon They happen often enough that most everyone has experienced a completely defective machine-made product.
And critical, purpose defeating flaws are not what hand-crafted goods usually have :)
They're at the very least, more subtle. We can appreciate that, because if nothing else, it's unique.
@violet but in that case you are appreciating the labor that went into it and embracing the imperfection rather than just dealing with it like just a defect
@dragon There are mistakes that can't be forgiven in a product, is what we're getting at :)
