Southeast New England Fibershed

Southeast New England Fibershed -- Providence, R.I., New Bedford, Mass, and surrounding area.

The Southeastern New England Fibershed comprises Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Their mission is to create a regional fibershed that unites fiber to finished product. From farmer to processor, from financing to cut and sew, they are connecting the dots of the supply chain to bring production back to reinvigorate a once-thriving New England textile industry. They base the geographic radius on the historical textile processing centers of New Bedford, Massachusetts, and Providence, Rhode Island, both of which have extensive remaining infrastructure, and cover both states with an approximately 100-mile radius.
