Local Cloth is committed to helping local farmers, artists, small scale textile processors and producers grow. Our region includes farms, businesses and individuals within a 100-mile radius of Asheville, NC.

With your support Local Cloth is able to:

  • Educate with the Textile Study Group – a monthly, free, and open to the public lecture series investigating the cultural and historical aspects of textiles.

  • Connect consumers to regional producers with our annual fiber tailgate market Fiber Feel Day.

  • Activate the local creative economy through classes, workshops, and interest groups at our community dye studio.

  • Celebrate our local talents in a biennial fashion show featuring garments made by local talent using locally sourced materials.
