Carrying on with our ‘Our Fashion’ series of blog posts, today I’m going to talk about Hemp. The word ‘hemp’ conjures up images of so called ‘hippies’ from the 60s and 70s, wearing mis-matched clothing, not focussing on the fashion aspect of clothing and rather the practical, earth-friendly elements.
