Permacouture Institute is an educational non-profit for regenerative design in fashion and textiles. Permacouture Institute supports healthy integration between nature and culture. We encourage cross-pollination between sustainability movements and preservation of traditional textile methods, sparking innovation in the process.
We work with hands-on grassroots projects to
support sustainability and textiles. We research
sustainable plant-based dyes and recycled fibers,
and consult and educate in the realm of sustainable textiles by looking closely at patterns already found in nature.
Permacouture Institute was founded to encourage
creativity in where our materials come from and the social practice that supports it. Over-consumption and toxic run-off from the clothing and textile industry has increased environmental and cultural degradation. We specifically target healthy practices and encourage the exploration and implementation of regenerative design from the smallest seed to the wellspring of new growth.
Clothing and textiles have long been connected not only to material necessity, but also to celebration of culture, ethno-botany, creative re-use and innate sense of place. Permacouture Institute explores fashion and textiles from a dynamic and ecological perspective, offering optimal solutions for change.
