Vancouver Fibreshed creates and shares open source resources that document the history and ecology of the unceded traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

This knowledge network will be shared between artisans, industry, and post-secondary institutions to uncover possibilities for creating a local, sustainable and ethical textile ecosystem.
