Documentary films about the textile industry are not exactly the staple of this site but we’ll make an exception for French director and designer Benoit Millot’s lovely film about linen

The film was commissioned by the CELC which is, we’re sure you know, the European Flax and Hemp Confederation, and explains how this most ancient of textiles goes from field to fashion. We particularly liked the graphics introducing each section.
