Fibre processing tools! Farm/fashion

Hi farm-hackers!

I’m looking for info on tools for processing fibre plants (namely flax and hemp) into fabric! Breaking, decorticating, scutching, hacking and spinning tools are all of interest to me. I know this is done on a large industrial scale (mostly in China) already, but I’m interested in something more cottage-industry sized, so a small farmer could process their own crops in collaboration with local artisans, and create a small local farm-to-fadhion supply chain, rather than a global one. If you have any info or leads on people already doing this I’d love to know about it!

Thanks for your help :slight_smile:

This might be better pursued in GOSH, the open-source hardware folks! Best of luck!
