I recently stumbled over a great video of cigar rolling at Martinez Cigars, a small NYC based cigar shop that blends and rolls high quality cigars.
Brooklyn-based film studio Bureau Of Common Goods has begun rolling out a new digital video series, entitled “Made By Hand,” which follows people who make things by hand — sustainably, locally, and with a love for their craft.
For the fourth installment of the series, which returns after a six month hiatus, they explore the art of cigar rolling and focuses on family-owned, NYC-based cigar store Martinez Cigars.
In 1974, Dominican immigrant Don Antonio Martinez started a small shop in the Big Apple, and sold hand-rolled cigars. 38 years later his son, Jesus, carries on the tradition. For more info on Martinez Cigars, visit MartinezCigars.com.
