Design Week Portland 2018

Join us for a panel discussion around those who are striving to build local production, from farm to fiber. By strengthening the connections between the passionate, hardworking people that power our local fiber economy, we hope to position the Pacific Northwest to meet the demand for domestic, thoughtfully produced and environmentally responsible fiber, textiles, and apparel. Panelists will share their experience, current projects, and what’s being done to foster growth within their industry. Apparel professionals, land stakeholders, manufacturing specialists, and anyone interested in the farm-to-fiber movement, you’re invited.

We will open with a cocktail hour with food and adult beverages. During the social hour, attendees will have an opportunity to touch and feel some items each panelist has brought that demonstrates their work and to engage in conversations surrounding this important topic. Come meet other like minded individuals to see how best we can support this ongoing challenge in domestic apparel production.

20% of proceeds from this event will be donated to Pacific Northwest Fibershed.
