Join the regional textile supply chain with New York Textile Lab
We bring New York designers together with fiber producers and mills to help to grow an economically diverse, statewide textile supply chain. We aim to rebuild regional textile production, which adds value to our communities and the environment.
Designers recognize the challenges that plague large manufacturing systems, such as environmental violations leading to climate change, human rights abuses in factories and the continuing centralization of economic power. Small- scale approaches to manufacturing allow control throughout production systems so greater attention is paid to the wellbeing for people and the environment. Our goal is to create distributed networks of small businesses that include fiber farms, mills, and manufacturers, which enable the growth of a resilient textile economy in New York State.
