California Cloth Foundry’s Lydia Wendt co-presented with Sally Fox and Amber Bieg at the 2014 Eco Farm Conference. The panel presentation was titled: From Field to Fashion, How Does Our Clothing Grow? The conversation revolved around the question of: Can textiles be sustainable from field to retail? Can they be local as well? Sally gave an overview of fiber farming and Lydia discussed California Cloth Foundry’s fabric development, domestic supply chain and trends in natural fiber fashion. The 90 minute talk was recorded and will be posted to the Eco Farm conference site in the near future.
