Linen People - Past & Present - A look at Irish Linen production

In this film we reminisce with people who worked in the flax and linen industry and also meet The McConville brothers from Co. Down who still grow and process flax to this day. There are stories from farmers who grew the famous crop, those who worked in the mills and factories. From craft spinning hobbyists who spend long hours to making this fine thread to one of Ireland's finest hand weavers, Marion Baur,  who makes a living from weaving fine linen cloth. There is also a new generation of sophisticated linen users who like to mix the traditional with modern methods and who see a bright future in the famous Irish Linen.
