Video: Here's a short documentary from Jack Flynn and Nick David about making Harris Tweed on the Island of Harris and Lewis in Scotland. You get to see the people whose lives centre around making this traditional fabric; hear their stories about how important it is to the island, their families and their heritage; and most beautifully of all, see glimpses of the whole manufacturing process, where all sorts of colours of thread are weaved together on a loom to make the tweed. It's really gorgeous.
