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.
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.
Testing a new waxed hand-stitching thread in preparation for our next photo-shoot. What do you think?
After a long wait, these beautiful Japanese Yujiro thread cutters have arrived. They're razor sharp and a very welcome addition to our tool-kit! It's these small details that make working in the Backyard Denim studio such a pleasure.
Hand printing by stencil is so satisfying. It takes time, but every one is unique. Loving the new blue ink! It sinks into the canvas and looks almost vintage from day one.
