Fibreshed

Regenerating landscapes through carbon farm planning, rebuilding local manufacturing, and empowering regional communities.

A fibershed is a concept referring to a strategic geography that defines a textile resource base, much like a watershed or a foodshed. In that sense, it means being connected to a place and a landscape, knowing what grows there, what options for production are possible there, and then supporting and relying on those resources to fulfill basic necessities such as water, food, shelter — and clothing.
