The art of cigar making documented wonderfully by Made by Hand

Posted by Barbara Ryan,

When it comes to cigarettes, the art of rolling may not be deemed a credible skill to add to your CV by most people (or any people in fact). But cigars are a whole different matter and The Cigar Shop shows the process of making these iconic luxury items from scratch and the worth customers place on the skill. Like all of Made by Hand’s pieces, this is a top-notch process film and as ever watching something being made in front of you can be a little bit magic. Shot fantastically, it demonstrates how community values can shape the place where an object is made just as much as the exquisite craftsmanship behind it.
