There are not many mills left in the United States today. And the ones still operating are not necessarily using the natural, organic fibers we urgently need to convert to for the sake of the environment. For anyone interested in the redevelopment of local manufacturing, I encourage you to check out the Kickstarter campaign for a great project, @hustontextilecompany. You can search “Huston” on Kickstarter to find it. Photo is my own from the former Lowell Mills in Massachusetts. It is a museum now but the machinery is operated for display.
