Can textiles be organic from field to retail? Can they be local as well? What about dyes? Learn the history of the first generation of organic textiles back in the 1990s. Listen to ideas from the next generation of designers and farmers who are still trying to get clothing to be as good for the earth as it can be for the spirit. Sally Fox develops and markets naturally colored cottons. Others challenge us to wear clothing made from locally produced fiber, strengthening our links to sustainability, local economies, and regional agriculture.
