THE STITCH PROJECT
FILMS OF THREE DRESSES AND INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE
Film has been used to capture and safeguard the intangible cultural heritage associated with each traditional dress. The use of film in this way is innovative and will ensure that the craftsmanship, production and social history, and cultural manifestations of each traditional dress are effectively safeguarded.
This intellectual output enables important heritage to be passed on and the use of film will render it engaging and more likely to inspire designers and craftspeople to carry on these textile traditions and create awareness regarding the importance of traditional dress in each culture.
