British Pathé

For this weekend, I leave you with a list of amazing videos from the British Pathé archive. They are sexist and problematic on a number of levels (Orientalism, anyone?), but fascinating nonetheless.

This is the video that led me down the rabbit hole, on wallpaper and matching fabrics.

If you’ve ever wondered how textured wallpaper is made, there’s this. Be still my beating heart.

These gorgeous colours and textures, on the manufacturing of wool.

Sexism and a paint job.

A bizarre fashion show.

Silk worms!

How sublime is this pasta harvesting?

The doll head contraption is my new favourite thing.
