Field to Fabric
‘Spinning Straw into Gold’ – a new mill connecting regenerative agriculture to sustainable fashion. We will produce natural fibre yarn which is grown, processed and spun in the UK. We can no longer ignore the systemic waste, pollution and worker’s rights atrocities in the global fashion supply chain, the time is right for a local soil-to-soil textile economy which nourishes the earth and community in which it grows. Inspired by the Fibershed movement we envisage a farming/milling operation run with solar power and within walking distance of the workers’ homes which can produce yarn and fabric with a negative carbon footprint.
