Cup: Tara Ireland. Beans: Sumatra Mandheling. Great start to an exciting Friday! I hope you all have a good one too!
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.
Brilliant coverage for Backyard Denim on The Milltown.
"The Milltown is the project of Dave & Joe; two friends obsessed with menswear. We don’t believe in following trends, we believe in brands with a strong heritage and clothing that was originally made for a purpose. We are passionate about fabrics, craftsmanship, and all the little details that are often overlooked and undervalued."
"As a result, the tote bags really stand out and are incomparable with anything else we have come across. The leather wallets (featured below) are also rather special - handmade in London, and stitched completely by hand. What's not to like?"
Is it really the first day of winter?! The recently landscaped Lloyd Park & William Morris Gallery E17

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.
This beautifully finished anvil has just arrived in the Backyard Denim studio. If you're thinking it's a full size blacksmiths anvil, check out photo #2! Perfect for hand-finishing our solid copper rivets.
