Leather lovers and skateboard shredders, stop what you’re doing now and go check out the awesome, handcrafted work of Adam Elliott, owner of Can’t Skate Manufacturing.  Growing up loving the culture that surrounded the skateboard scene, but not being able to skateboard himself, Adam dived head first into the artistic realm of the sport. With the original intention to try and dominate the world with his brand, upon realising this would mean having to comprise on quality and see him detach himself somewhat from the business, Adam began to scale his domination plans back a little. This left Adam with the room to start truly focusing on what he wanted the brand to represent. Fast-forward to today and Can’t Skate has become a brand known for it’s vintage, antique style skateboards that bring back feelings of nostalgia. A rising name in the slow fashion market, Adam’s products focus on being environmentally conscious and producing something that customers can cherish for years to come. With less pressure to output large quantities of stock, Adam is left with the time to both enjoy the creative and construction process and ensure he produces a high quality product.
