IPI’s plant located at the Iowa Correctional Institution for Women in Mitchellville employs incarcerated women for the program's textile, imaging, embroidery and screen printing operations, as well as several private sector partnerships. 

  • The Mitchellville shop has evolved since its inception in 2008 producing textiles products mainly for Iowa’s institutions such as mattresses and bed and bath linens. This shop also includes IPI’s embroidery and screen printing operation that provides personalize apparel to our customers. Textiles is a labor-intensive shop; approximately 25 to 30 incarcerated women work in the shop daily to produce textiles items for nearly $1 million in sales annually.

For more information on the Mitchellville plant, please contact Plant Manager Justin Opfer at 515-725-5310 or justin.opfer@iowa.gov.
