The Grail with Dean Delray

At the age of 19 years old my guest Rusty Zylstra had friends that would dumpster dive at the Filson factory and grab old scraps and damaged goods and send them to him. Rusty would then with no training at all use the materials to make stuff like wallets and messenger bags. Slowing learning a craft that now 11 years later has turned into a very successful business called Sidnaw Company.

Rusty makes some of the coolest Jackets, Pants and Bags by hand right here in the USA.

Tune in and hear his amazing story and also check out his instagram to see all his killer goods.

Thanks for tuning into The Grail.
