Who grew your clothes?
To harness our local resources to produce anything as sophisticated as a garment of clothing involves many processes, and a network of farmers, growers, mills, manufacturers, and designers as well as advocates, activists, and facilitators who are determined to create a new paradigm for fashion.
Fibreshed is a movement. Its goal: the development of systems from ‘soil to soil’; where textiles are grown, processed, designed, sewn, sold, worn, and eventually composted. These ‘regenerative’ processes offer a means of connecting the fashion industry with community, with society and with the environment so that they can all thrive.
This exhibition is an introduction to South West England Fibreshed.
