We're going to be in a documentary

Check out this video of a vest getting made, in the Wilga Menswear studio in Kallista. This is a clip from the forthcoming documentary 600 Mills by Martin Wood.

Also in it, Leigh laments the loss of a culture of making and manufacturing, but briefly outlines the open source business model for Peak Oil Company.

We're still heading toward that model, aiming to get the patterns for the vest, jacket and gloves up by December. The idea being you can download the patterns for free, buy materials from us (or source your own), come in and use our machines (or use your own), and if you're ready and willing, sell through Peak Oil Company (or out on your own). The only proviso, strictly speaking, is that you share back any changes or improvements you make to the patterns.

This way, we hope to connect up a small community of makers and designers with a similar mission to Peak Oil Company. Here's to that!
