Hosted by the Office of the Secretary of State for Wales, Welsh jean makers Hiut Denim break down the process of making a jean and discuss how they are bringing manufacturing back to Wales and getting their town making jeans again.

Cardigan is a small town of 4,000 people. 400 of them used to make jeans. They made 35,000 pairs a week, for three decades – then one day the factory closed. But all that skill and know-how remained, without any way of showing the world what they could do. That’s why The Hiut Denim Company was launched: to bring manufacturing back home and use the skills on their doorstep. Their town is going to make jeans again.
