We are frequently asked for support and business advice for new textile and fashion related ventures, such as supply chain and sourcing related knowledge, as well as how to set up a regional Fibreshed.
While we celebrate new endeavours that are prioritising sustainable and ethical practices and want to support them to align with Fibreshed principles , we have limited resources and capacity to do this while fundraising to develop the programs and support packages that we plan to offer our growing community of businesses and makers in the future. Indeed, we have a fantastic network that holds a huge amount of expertise, including business planning and administration, marketing and communications, design, tech editing, manufacture and a great wealth of artisanal textile skills as well as farming and animal husbandry.
For this reason we offer an initial 30 minute meeting/consultation free of charge. A key objective of this meeting will be to establish if and how we and our network, can help further, and to map out a potential support/consultancy strategy that will be subsequently be charged at an hourly rate depending on the type of work required.
Please get in touch for further details.
