Borrowed from the Soil: A farm-to-closet design exhibition
Borrowed from the Soil
Borrowed from the Soil is a farm-to-closet design exhibition showcasing local makers and designers.
* November 10 – 16
Do your clothes help or harm? Today’s clothing relies on transnational supply chains, petroleum-based materials, and land and labor exploitation. But what if your clothing could build ecosystem and community resilience, while regenerating healthy soil and land?
The Borrowed from the Soil exhibition explores a future vision where the way we produce and use one of our most basic human necessities – clothing — can support the longevity and health of our local ecosystems and communities. Explore the process behind the production of locally-grown and made clothing that connects you to California farms, mills and designers.
This exhibition follows the journey from cotton and flax fields to sheep ranches and alpaca farms through the transformations of raw materials into beautiful textiles, embedding into the design process an understanding of how these materials can be healthfully returned back into our soils.
We invite you to help build a collective understanding on the interconnectedness between material, design, and consumer choices, and the land and people whom these choices impact.
