How Good Clothes are Made: Bring a little HEMP into your closet.
Posted: May 07 2015
I am always striving to learn about and use sustainable fabrics in my designs. As it turns out, good old hemp just might be the most eco-friendly fabric out there. Did you know that hemp is rapidly renewable, maturing in 3-4 months?! It also sets itself apart because it requires no chemical pesticides or fertilizers to grow. Hemp fabric is versatile and can be made strong and sturdy or soft and luxurious. Take a look at how hemp goes from farm to closet.
