Coton jaune – Acadian Brown Cotton – A Cajun Love Story

 Author: Sharon Gordon Donnan  Category: Documentary film  Published: 1970  Tags: Cover image |

This documentary film explores the history of natural brown cotton in southwest Louisiana and examines its origins and use among the people of Acadiana. Rich in oral history, the film tells the story of the hand spun and woven brown cotton blankets accompanying young Cajun brides as part of their dowry, L’amour de Maman, a mother’s love. This tradition came from France to Nova Scotia to the bayous of South Louisiana and has continued for two hundred fifty years.
