Sustainable Fibers

Building a more equitable and regenerative textile industry

Why we invest in regenerative fibers

Environmental equity and textiles

Currently, “market-rate” returns from global textile industry investments reflect a reliance on the global oil and gas industry and the pervasive use of extractive labor practices. At the same time, U.S.-based fiber producers and processors struggle to access capital to build more just, equitable, and regenerative practices.

Recognizing that natural fiber and dye crops can and should play a key role in vibrant, economically viable regenerative agriculture, Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems Funders (SAFSF) and Fibershed joined forces to develop a capital solution that considers industry’s effects on people and planet.

Mission Driven Finance is proud to work with SAFSF and Fibershed on a flexible and catalytic sustainable fibers strategy tailored to the needs of smaller U.S. natural fiber and textile producers and processors with a specific focus on environmental equity.
