BRISTOL CLOTH LAUNCH!

botanical inks

The Bristol Cloth project showcases British heritage, preserving what this land has always offered and what British communities have done for centuries. We are set to prove that it is still commercially viable to make cloth on our shores, sustaining British tradition, culture, community, land and the economy.

Bristol Cloth is made with holistically farmed and biologically washed wool from Fernhill Farm. Naturally dyed with organic British plant dyes by Botanical Inks. And woven at the Bristol Weaving Mill, the first industrial loom to open in Bristol in 90 years.

By supporting this campaign, you can help re-create a local, resilient textile economy in the UK, offering an alternative to the unsustainable global textile production systems which have threatened traditional British cloths almost to extinction and critically damaged the health of our biosphere; Support regenerative agriculture which captures carbon from the air and locks it back into the soil whilst also replenishing soil health; Help recreate our ability to dye textiles using non-toxic plant dyes; promote biological textiles which are safe to use and put back into the earth at the end of their useful life cycle and bring artisan textile production back into our local economy.

When the campaign goes live on Wednesday October 24th at 7.30am, please pledge whatever amount you can in exchange for the excellent local designer made products made with Bristol Cloth, including coats, bags, purses, jackets and other accessories, and meterage of cloth for you to make your own items with.

Please share this project on social media, to help make it seen as far and wide as possible. The more shares you can help with, the more chance there is of people supporting this project.

Below are some ready made social media posts for you to copy and paste onto your profile.


With so much gratitude for your support,
