A full day trying to add a single page. All I'd like to do is to add the aprons that I've been making to my website. Unfortunately, in the period since I set up the site (and last updated it) the builder has changed so much. The changes are definitely for the better I know, but it still means relearning what I was pretty sketchy on before!
I'm still feeling very lucky that this is my "job", and one day lost isn't all that bad. Back in the day, I'd often sit through an all day corporate style meeting, and come out having learned nothing. I guess this is progress!
Enjoy the rest of your week everyone (emphasis on hopefully at least one reader!)
Now completed and being tested... please send a message through the contact page, twitter, or facebook to get your order in early.
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.
Not long now until the release of the Backyard Denim X Digby Jackson collaboration! Watch this space for three all new products featuring Digby Jackson's fresh and exclusive print, available in two colour options.
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 http://londonclothcompany.wix.com/londonclothcompany 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.
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.
