It’s been a joy filming on location for our upcoming short documentary about why people are so attached to their Barbour wax jackets.
We’ve met the small team who expertly repair, alter and reproof approximately 14,000 jackets every year at Barbour’s South Shields factory.
We’ve also met a few customers around the UK who have owned jackets for over 30 years and are now busy editing.
We hope it will become a seamless story that weaves all the threads together. We’ll begin the story by sharing our film-making diary with you about how and why I and Jan Cawood of Tin Man Films (www.tinmanfilms.co.uk) came to make this film.
