Wabi Sabi by Bobby Spade: Wabi-sabi is the art of finding beauty in imperfection and profundity in nature, of accepting the natural cycle of growth, aging and decay. It's simple, slow, and uncluttered-and it reveres authenticity above all. We are builders, craftsmen and creators who embrace things well made that either can act as a vehicle for, or have already achieved, all of the marks that time, weather, and loving use leave behind. Whether it be our cars, motorcycles, clothes or leather goods we are constantly asking ourselves "how will it wear and age" and we believe that to be an essential part of creating anything of quality. Wabi-sabi is underplayed and modest, the kind of quiet, undeclared beauty that waits patiently to be discovered and our job is to create quality soil for it to grow or highlight it when its found.
