Regional Fiber Manufacturing Initiative

Climate Beneficialâ„¢ goods can meet our basic human needs while reigning in our consumption footprint, and we need a thriving regional manufacturing system to make it happen. Fibershed has developed the RFMI to execute a manufacturing strategy that will regionalize the production of textiles and contribute to climate solutions. The Initiative uplifts entrepreneurs with expert guidance, maps the ecosystem for a fully functioning value chain, and channels investment dollars toward critical infrastructure.

Producer Network

Who grows your clothes? The Northern California Fibershed Producer Program is a membership-based network of farmers, ranchers, designers, sewers, weavers, knitters, felters, spinners, mill owners, and natural dyers living and working within 51 counties in the North and Central regions of California. Our Producer Network is brimming with technical expertise in agricultural and textile practices. We offer services like educational sessions on business development and land stewardship embedded within social connectivity like meet-ups and a bi-annual printed membership newsletter.
