After the death of his beloved wife, textile artist Allan Brown begins a seven-year endeavour to weave a hand-spun dress from stinging nettles foraged in the woods surrounding his home.
Allan Brown makes a dress by hand just from the fibre of foraged stinging nettles over 7 years. A modern day fairytale and hymn to the healing power of nature and slow craft.
This film is a hand-spun labour of love too and follows him every step of the way.

“This is an exquisite film. Extremely beautiful and helpful for anyone suffering loss or grief. An inspiration.”  Sir Mark Rylance, 2023

A husband’s grief becomes a thing of beauty in [this] lyrical documentary”  **** The Observer
