This visual directory is a membership-based community of businesses and individuals from Bristol, Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Wiltshire who are on board with the Fibreshed ethos and willing to participate in a conversation about how Fibreshed will take shape in the South West. If you would like to be included please see the Membership page for further information.
If you are elsewhere in the UK and wondering how you can be involved – over time we expect this map to grow beyond the South West and link in with other regional Fibreshed producer maps as they pop up across the country. Please see the official Fibershed Affiliate Directory for up to date details on other Fibresheds and the Affiliate Program page for how to start your own!
