The Story of the Coast Salish Knitters

The Story of the Coast Salish Knitters

For almost a century, the Coast Salish knitters of Vancouver Island have produced Cowichan sweaters from handspun wool. These distinctive sweaters are known and loved around the world, but the Aboriginal women who make them remain largely invisible. Combining archival footage with the voices of three generations of woolworkers, this video tells their tale.
