Haptic & Hue’s ‘Tales of Textiles’ podcast is back for its third season! The new series, named ‘The Chatter of Cloth‘, takes eight different fabrics and tells the story of where they came from, what they are, and more importantly – what they meant to the people who made and used them.

The first episode starts with a cloth fragment that was seized as a woman fled her home in fear of her life, and is now being used to change the way we think about textiles. Another looks at a pattern that has travelled the world for thousands of years.

The podcast explored the hardship and wartime scandal sparked by fabric and the tale of a quilting tradition that refused to travel, instead putting down its roots in a rural area of northern England.

Settle down and go on a voyage with Haptic & Hue, presented by hand-weaver and broadcaster, Jo Andrews.

Episodes run every two weeks from September 9th until December 16th 2021 and can be found on all major podcast platforms or or via their website www.hapticandhue.com/listen
