When people ask how things are made, it's very hard to describe in words, so I've decided to try to post more images here.  My methods may not be efficient, they may not be traditional, but this is what works for me in June 2013.

So, what a cool guy!!  Backyard Denim spent the afternoon with Daniel at London Cloth.  He's so  interesting and passionate, it's impossible not to get caught up in his enthusiasm.  What he's doing from his micro mill in East London is fascinating! 

Looking around his mill, learning a little more about weaving, meeting the mill cat, and discussing the potential for a unique "Backyard" cloth...   a very exciting prospect! 

Check him out at   and on facebook for dozens of images from the mill.

Thanks for an inspiring afternoon Daniel.  Really looking forward to working on a new cloth with you! 

Cup: Tara Ireland.  Beans: Sumatra Mandheling.  Great start to an exciting Friday! I hope you all have a good one too!  
As appealing as a fatty lunch might be on a cold day, it was this Backyard Denim combo that really hit the "need-for-greenery" spot today.  Fresh vege, Greek olive oil & Japanese soy sauce.  Superb!  
Afternoon all!   Thanks for checking in on Backyard Denim.

It's been a while since I posted anything from the Backyard Denim studio, so here goes...   Mostly it's a visual diary of the new belts going together.  

Please follow this link for more photographs of the finished belts.

I hope you're keeping warm and having an amazing weekend!  Reid.
A very fine gentleman, Mr Nick Clements, has delivered as promised. A full page on Backyard Denim in the latest denim geek bible, Men's File issue 08!  This is a magazine I've coveted since I first discovered it at issue 03.  To be honest, it never occurred to me at the time that my work would ever feature in such an amazing magazine.  I'm truly honoured to have Nick's support, and am very proud of this article.

Found this image today while having a tidy up.  Good memories of a childhood spent outdoors playing cricket and football in the backyard.  Also a part of the development of the Backyard Denim logo that I really enjoyed.  The original photograph features on my website too.
