Botanical Colors Awarded Grant From Fibers Fund!

We are so excited to announce that Botanical Colors was awarded one of five technical assistance grants from Fibers Fund, a project of Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems Funders (SAFSF) and Fibershed with Mission Driven Finance.

All five grants were given to support and grow U.S. fiber, textile, and dye businesses.

Botanical Colors joins Oregon-based Fibrevolution profiled in the SAFSF Fibers Roadmap Case Studies. Both businesses have helped inform the development of the Fibers Fund from the beginning.   

The next set of grants supports a critical new group of businesses for the Fibers Fund, the Black Fiber Cohort. This cohort will provide tailored support to Black fiber entrepreneurs as their businesses develop and better position Black businesses to secure other forms of capital in the future.

We invite you to learn about all the grantees here on the Fibers Fund website.
