Wabi-sabi is an ancient Japanese philosophy focused on accepting the imperfects of life. It's rooted in Buddhism and arose from tea ceremonies in which prized utensils were handmade, irregular and imperfect.
Wabi-sabi is a wonky home-grown pear, a crack in a teacup, scuffed up floors in your grandmothers old home, an elbow patch on your favorite old coat. It's an appreciation of all that is simple, modest and imperfect.
Authenticity is a big part of wabi-sabi, so cracks and imperfections are cherished for symbolizing the passage of time and loving use. Embracing wabi-sabi in the home teaches us to be content without constantly yearning for more.
Life, the scars, our laugh lines, all of it. It's all perfectly imperfect.
