The first time we heard about Fibersheds we were hooked! What is a Fibershed you ask? A Fibershed is a defined area for sourcing local fibers, dyes, labor, processing, production of fiber related goods. Like the “locavore” movement for food the Fibershed concept developed to promote the local sourcing of these goods and services. Google Fibershed and you will find out all about them and if there is one near you.
We want to promote the value and goals of local sourcing while acknowledging that we live in a wide variety of geographic areas and that not everything we use is locally available. We believe that by working closely with Fibersheds around the world we can meet the goals of local sourcing and stay open to global influences and friendships.
Below are links to several Fibersheds. If I have missed your favorite Fibershed and you want to be listed please contact me with link and we add.
