See How a Chanel Jacket is Made [VIDEO]

If you've ever wondered why a Chanel black tweed jacket costs several thousands of dollars, look no further. The French fashion house has just released a short video which shows a team of ultra-skilled seamstresses at work on one of the iconic pieces.

After you finish the clip, you might want to consider how most of your possessions (including the computer or mobile device you're using to read this) were likely created: by underpaid and overworked people operating large machines inside a large and oppresively ugly factory, in a country notorious for its human rights abuses.

Chanel might be costly, but its evident commitment to handcrafting makes the jacket seem like a steal.
