This is possibly my favorite category of short little movie: a visit with somebody who makes beautiful things.
Today, we’re going on a visit to the most remote inhabited island in the UK. Yes, it’s Fair Isle, population 55.
The maker we’re visiting is Mati Ventrillon, whose website I have visited often with Fair Isle heart eyes on several occasions.
Mati handlooms Fair Isle sweaters. She’ll work with you to cook up your very own bespoke Fair Isle jumper. SIGH!
Here’s the movie. (Apologies for the noisy ad at the beginning! So not in tune with the film that follows.)
And here’s a little Fair Isle history, courtesy of Mati’s website.
Happy Mother’s Day, everybody! Boy David comes home from college today, clever thing for him to do.
