A Fibershed is a geographical landscape that defines a natural textile resource base where products can be produced using entirely local fibers, local natural dyes and local labor.
The High Desert Fibershed is the area within a 200-mile radius of Cedarville, CA. Cedarville is very small, so by reaching out to communities within 200 miles we can reach Reno and Winnemucca, Nevada and Lakeview and Klamath Falls, Oregon, plus many California communities like Susanville, Alturas, Fall River Mills and Redding. We hope to encourage more growers to join our Fibershed producer community and would love to be producing locally grown clothing. Let’s scale this idea and see what happens!

When you enter your local fabric store, it is rare to nonexistent that you’ll see a textile with an ingredients list, and it is more rare to see a fabric processed within your home community.
