THIS is Textilesmithing. Roy makes jeans. He doesn’t slap his label on a sweatshop manufactured piece of shoddy workmanship and charge a mint for them. Roy smiths jeans. He takes denim, thread, rivets, and buttons, and with the great skill of a craftsman, constructs a solid pair of jeans using Machinery he maintains with his own hands. Roy is a clothing artisan.
More at Roy Denim. His philosophy is right on.
