FilmDedication to Craft

Back and forth, forth and back. Wainwright caught the spirit of the land, absorbed it through his footsteps and translated it with his pen. He stitched together waypoints, mapping paths for a hundred generations hence, interpreting the wonder he found. Wainwright wove a record of singular devotion, a unique dedication to craft and his Lakeland home. 7 books, 13 years. 214 fells.

For many, he will forever reside in the silent depths of Innominate Tarn, at the summit of Haystacks, a life writ large across the fells. Millican celebrates the unusual power of this commitment in a unique collaboration – A limited edition, hand-made backpack. Made in the UK.

Transcription:

Back and forth, forth and back, old hands write paths his feet had walked.

As wainwright stalked, stitched together waypoints, passed knowledge of Lakeland wandering and wove, 214 tracks, seven places, 10 times, toward the twist of earth beyond books and the consequence of moments, worth and every minute marked.

Back and forth, forth and back, old hands write paths his feet had walked.

From that first glimpse, that Whitsuntide, to journeys end on haystacks, footprints held promises, life were at large on fell and time, translation of exposure Feld, mapping ground a craft, the measure of a life.

Back and forth, forth and back, old hands write paths his feet had walked.
