Isn’t it funny how certain defects on artisan products give them that extra little bit of specialness?
I was hammering a rivet on the faith x Ken type II belt today (the broken tip was still a little scratchy), and I noticed lots of little ‘defects’ on the garments and accessories around me – here are some of them~

I personally adore these defects – they make each item unique.

The edge on the broken tip is smoother now 🙂
