A Vimeo channel featuring videos of makers making. Click through with caution — you may never come back.

And I think it’s fair to say that this line from Billy Tennent in his video introducing him and his hand-made leathers brand pretty much sums up one of the most wonderful things about hand-made goods:

The perfect piece of any craft — leather work, in particular — is it’s fit for function. It does what it’s designed to do, perfectly.

Update: There’s a Those Who Make website as well, which, in addition to the videos, also has some interviews.
