The first installment in an upcoming series of videos from a duo of Bay Area documentary-makers has released its first installment. It features Sean Patrick Young, whose grandmother made jeans for his father and uncles to work on their farm. He spent years developing and designing his own raw denim brand, Stovall & Young, which is now available online, and at Bryan Lee in San Francisco.
Look for more videos of folks who build awesome things from Sara Washington and her partner Julia Kostreva, who say the project is a "new biannual journal about makers, communities, design and objects in everyday life." Twice per year, they'll launch a series with a new theme—this fall's, which the Stovall & Young segment will be part of, is "California." Also look for a Kickstarter from them later this year.
