The Big Cloth


London filmmakers Nick David and Jack Flynn were invited to the beautiful island of Harris and Lewis in Scotland’s Outer Hebrides to make a short film for The Harris Tweed Authority. _H2I8354 "We tell the story from the Cheviot and Scottish Blackface sheep to the weavers and mills, the wool dyers and blenders, the yarn spinners and warpers and finally to the cloth finishers and stampers". _H2I7996 It’s a celebration of an island community, it’s local traditions and the people that make Harris Tweed so unique.

    A truly evocative and informative film – vividly bringing to mind my childhood on the Island of Lewis. It is good to hear authentic Lewis accents and the clack of the loom which was characteristic of the villages; and to have the magnificent scenery as a backdrop. Congratulations to everyone involved and best wishes for the future. Caitriona NicComeraid.

    A wonderful film, thank you. My family is from the Outer Hebrides, although I live on the mainland – for now. The film is a beautiful reflection of the people, the land and the sea which are the roots for the cloth. Long may they all thrive.

    Such an inspiring film…..and so good to see the revival of old traditions, employing so many individuals.
