The role of Climate Beneficial Agriculture as a foundation for textile creation processes.
Adriana Marina (founder of the NGO Hecho por Nosotros and B-Corp animaná) is happy to host Rebecca Burgess.
Communities around the world often rely upon exploitative textile systems. Fibershed develops place-based regional fiber and natural dye systems that generate necessary forms of material culture, while simultaneously regenerating lost carbon stocks in our soil and providing meaningful livelihoods.
Fibershed founder and Executive Director Rebecca Burgess has built an extensive network of farmers and artisans within the Northern California fibershed and is piloting a regenerative fiber systems model at a community scale.
