Wild Fibers - Fall 2009

The new issue has just hit the stands and we are proud to be part of it. This issue contains the story of our journey to Assam in the fall of 2008 that led to the Maiwa Foundation teaching a natural dye workshop in 2009.

Wild Fibers has a mission: " to educate and promote all aspects of the natural fiber industry with special emphasis on sustainable practices and responsible use of natural resources throughout the world. We believe fibers represent an important chapter not only to artisans and cultural development, but an increasing sensitivity to environmental impact as well."

Featuring beautiful photography from around the world, wild fibers is a showcase of animal husbandry, culture and cloth. It is the project of intrepid traveller and fiber enthusiast Linda Cortright.

This fall Linda will be present in Vancouver as part of the Maiwa Textile Symposium. This is a rare opportunity to meet Linda (she is often in rural areas gathering stories for Wild Fibers). Join us on Thursday October 22 for the lecture Wild Fibers.
