A modern-day fairytale and hymn to the healing power of nature and slow craft. Textile artist Allan Brown spends seven years making a dress from scratch, using only the fibre of locally foraged stinging nettles. This is ‘hedgerow couture’, the greenest of slow fashion. It is also the medicine that helps Allan survive the death of his wife, Alex, which leaves him, and their four children bereft.
