The Cigar Shop - Made by Hand
Smoke and story at New York City’s Martinez Cigars, founded in 1974.
In 1974, Dominican immigrant Don Antonio Martinez started a small shop in New York City selling hand rolled cigars. Thirty-eight years later his son, Jesus, carries on the tradition. The shop combines craftsmanship with community, mixing equal parts work and play. A project from bureauofcommongoods.com, Made by Hand is a new short film series celebrating the people who make things by hand-sustainably, locally, and with a love for their craft.
