Thank you for including my Equestrian video on a slow travel trip to Sweden. I also enjoyed the horse cart video. The Azores video reminded me of my horseback riding trip to Pico Island and Sao Miguel. Great film screening.

8. Project Boleega Manufacture Tourism: Indigo Dyeing and Denim Production in Fukuyama, Hiroshima – Shiitake Creative (2 minutes)

Next up, we’ll get a glimpse into how bespoke Japanese denim is made, one thread, one color at a time. Manufacture TourismⓇ (operated by Project BoleeGa) is a community-based sustainable activity to transform world-class denim into travel content while supporting local crafts and businesses.

Faced with a lack of successors and severe competition, the smaller-scale local businesses in Fukuyama were beginning to lose pride in their work. Project BoleeGa was founded to unite those businesses and recreate a bespoke experience for travelers.

The video is created by Shiitake Creative, a creative agency based in Japan.

PS: This one was my favourite. I love this video because it shows a different side to slow travel. Imagine rolling down America in a converted school bus for weeks on end, with people you hadn't met before you started. This video shows that slow travel can be adventurous and does not need to conform!
