Cloth and Colour

The magnificent colours of the Highlands and Islands have inspired people for centuries. From sea to hillside, mountain to loch, the rich tapestry of colour in the landscape is reflected in the textiles created from local materials and woven by skilled makers. The story of the region's textile heritage, one of innovation and creativity, and the contemporary use of colour is explored in this short documentary.

This film was made by Northport as part of the Spirit of the Highlands and Islands project.
