About Us

Fibershed is a non-profit organization that develops regional and regenerative fiber systems. Our work expands opportunities to implement carbon beneficial agriculture, rebuild regional manufacturing, and connect end-users to the source of our fiber through education. We transform the economic systems behind the production of material culture to mitigate climate change, improve health, and contribute to racial and economic equity. 


We envision a textile system that embraces the values of de-colonized and equitable soil-to-skin processes. We will strengthen an international system of diverse textile communities that directly enhance regional economies for the purpose of generating permanent and lasting systems of localized fiber production. These regional regenerative production systems will diminish pressure on the ecologically undermined areas of the world. 

We see a nourishing tradition emerging that connects the wearer to local fields where clothes are grown in a system that can last for countless generations into the future. Through a host of scientifically vetted soil carbon enhancing practices, our supply chains will create ‘climate beneficial’ clothing that will become the new standard. We envision a world looking to rapidly mitigate the effects of climate change where consumers, manufacturers, designers, and ecologists collectively rethink and reimagine the lifecycle of garments. 


CORE VALUES:

Knowledge & Ecological Awareness: We gather, aggregate, and disseminate knowledge based on empirical data, direct experience, and traditional ecological knowledge.

Quality Relationships: We foster internal and external relationships based on truth and a willingness to adapt. Being able to share by giving and taking.

Changemaking: We pride ourselves on ethical, meaningful, synthetic, and intuitive work that has the power to inspire individual transformation and place-based values thinking.
