‘The Big Cloth’ is a short documentary about the Harris Tweed industry on the Island of Harris and Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. The film gives an insight into the island and the different characters who make this beautiful cloth. With over 170 freelance weavers on the island who weave this famous tweed from their own homes, it is the only cloth to have its own act of parliament protecting the industry.
