The Association for construction in plant fibres (Association pour la construction in fibres végétales) was formed in France in 1997 with the following objectives:

"the research, the development and the promotion of plant fibres in construction"

The association is non-profit and registered under the French law of 1901.

The association can assist with:

  • general and technical documentation for sale (books & videos)

  • practical training workshops

  • visits to construction sites and finished buildings

  • contacting a designer and builder experienced in plant fibre construction (including straw bale) via its network of members in France

    Members of the public may join the association and it publishes a newsletter.
