OVERVIEW: A Fibreshed for London (2015) is a documentary film that explores the current state of the textile industry in London by meeting with remarkable people who are doing their part to make the industry more sustainable. “Fibreshed develops regenerative textile systems that are based on carbon farming, regional manufactoring and public education”.
