This morning, to start your week off on an entertaining note, I thought I’d share a short, vintage video about the making of linen.
The video is from BBC Archive on Facebook, but you don’t have to have a Facebook account to watch the video.
If you’re a linen lover, a textile enthusiast, or if you like vintage cinema and the like, you might find this video as entertaining as I do!
The Linen Harvest is a short newsreel by the BBC, from 1951. It focuses on flax and linen production in the UK, where the linen industry flourished at the time.
I’ve shared linen production videos in the past – like this movie, Be Linen – but this is the first “vintage” video that I’ve seen that focuses on production in the UK.
The newsreel quality of the video makes it fun to watch!
Short and sweet today, I know – I’m embroiled in technical matters right now – but I hope you enjoy the video! We’ll catch up a little more on Wednesday!
