Scottish Style with Sandra Murray
Rare and Covetable
The Scottish Brocade
Nanjing Brocade, like much of the world’s ancient crafts, faces the challenge of raising interest among future generations in the skills required to maintain it. Join this voyage of discovery, that starts in the remote villages of the Highlands of Scotland and travels to Nanjing, China, to witness the challenge of bringing two very different weaving cultures together into one piece of fabric. Then see how that material is transformed into a bespoke garment that is a true one-off in the fashion industry. Through this innovative two pronged approach that produced the garment and documentary concurrently, it is hoped to bring understanding of the craft to a world wide audience and inspire future generations to take up the mantle that is the preservation of Nanjing Brocade.
