I have the highest respect for anyone who can make a living by creating things with their own hands (and does not exclude anyone who makes the world’s best sandwhich by starting with a lb. of flour and a garden). For the past four years I have been watching these two at Ooe Yofukuten Japan draft patterns and make denim jeans by hand. I have been heavily inspired by this and I have to say that though I have made jeans most of my life, they have made me look at what I do as more of an art than a “thats-what-sweatshop-people-do” kinda thing.

Check out their blog here and then stop by and see them when you’re in Japan.
