on a recent trip to amsterdam, my partner and I trawled the shops to get some hemp clothes.
We were disapointed by the lack of choice... unless you want to look like a hippy, stoner, and are the size of a supermodel.
Isn't it time the designers put a bit more thought into designing for a wider audience?
We weere after normal clothes, but made from hemp

Why don't you check the hemp clothes made by Armani? Expencive but then you can not complain about hippy style

Also Guess has some shirts available

So anyway; hempclothes are getting better and better

Greetings,

Alan

Anyway I can reccoment anybody interrested in hemp clothes to choose for mixtures with other fibers like wool silk or cotton; personally my hempclothes with 45% cotton are the best in quality and most beautifull. For purist a 100% hemp sounds like the best; accept it to be like linnen then that becomes very potato bagy very quick.

Greetings,

Alan

There are enough hemp clothes around that do not make you look like a hippie or require you to be a supermodel. My own model is "long knitting needle" and I have no trouble finding jeans or shirts.
But there is a terrible lack of shops that sell hemp clothes. I only know two of them: Hempworks in Amsterdam and Jas in Rotterdam. It looks like hemp clothes are even more illegal than weed...

That, like previously said, it has to be mixed with other fibers certainly doesn't make it the easy clothing fiber. Its probably more difficult to produce with hemp+other than with for example just plain cotton, and plain hemp is almost a non-issue. Processing hemp into clothing fibers is maybe not very common either.

Hello,

I guess that much knowledge about hemp clothing has been forgotten. You can spin a thread in a thousand ways.

People do not have so much underwear anymore. They used to be clothed like an onion.

Well, I wear both "pure" and "mixed" hemp clothes. Weren't jeans originally made of hemp? And I'm afraid I started collecting unusual fibres: hemp/yak wool en hemp/camel hair are the most unusual ones.
