Field to Fashion is a film that captures the grassroots efforts of the small, but growing, fibre community in Ontario to push the local and sustainable movement beyond just food. Wool in Ontario is an underappreciated commodity that hasn’t yet reached its full potential. Yet there is a developing groundswell amongst people interested in what they’re wearing and where it comes from. This short doc captures footage and interviews with people from every aspect of production: farmer, mill operator, weaver, and fashion designer. Our hope is that it inspires people to learn more about their local agricultural and textile industries.
