Sometimes you find yourself talking about all the things you used to make, the tools you had (worn smooth to perfectly match your grip) that were left behind in a cross country move or sold when other needs became more pressing.  Maybe you were a dedicated hobbyist, a weekend warrior and it became impossible to balance making things with all your daily commitments.

Or maybe, more tragically, you were a craftsman, a Grand Master, and it was the economy, or a cost benefit analysis or something else that took your ability to make things away. But in Cardigan, England the Hiut Denim Company is breathing new life back the town’s tradition of handmade jeans. It’s an inspiring story, that seems to be off to a positive start and is a great reminder that all your  skills and experience don’t go anywhere, they’re just waiting for you to give them another chance.
