Fibrevolution: American Linen Revival

Fibrevolution is a producer of high quality organic long line bast fiber, born of regenerative and sustainable systems, regional manufacturing and community activism.

We envision a regional farming network, centered around a bast fiber processing facility in Oregon, which will grow, produce, and distribute bast fiber to textile, apparel, and biocomposite markets.

We want local fiber. We want it organic. We want the people in every step of the process to be valued. We want to cause the least harm and spread the most good.

Our region has an abundance of wool and diverse animal fibers, suitable for cool weather textiles and apparel, but for a hot summer day, working in the fields, a nice linen farm shirt would be ideal. After thoroughly researching the successes and mistakes of the Willamette Valley’s historic fiber industry, we believe in the economic and environmental viability of flax.
