The Cap Makers by Laurence Griffiths – beautiful.

The threads that are woven into football kit and memorabilia is part of the charm that helps us fall in love with the game that little bit more.

With Wayne Rooney making his 100th appearance for England against Slovenia on the 15th of November, talented photographer and film maker Laurence Griffiths was granted access by the Football Association to discover how the traditional International honour caps are produced by Toye & Co in Bedworth.

It is a fantastic video. These people should indeed be celebrated.
