Vancouver Fibreshed is part of the Fibershed affiliate program and is an organization through which farms, mills, artisans, and community can come together to share local resources (within 300 km radius).
What is a Fibreshed?
Like a ‘foodshed’ or ‘watershed’, a fibreshed is a geographical landscape that defines and gives boundaries to a natural textile resource base.
Awareness of this bioregional designation engenders appreci- ation, connectivity, and sensitivity for the life-giving resources of our homelands.
