Here’s a very educational little doco on the history of hemp in the clothing industry from a year or two back from our friends at Afends; featuring David Rastovich, Wayne Lynch, Jonathan Salfield, Mike Fishwick & more.
Afends motto is ‘Question Everything’ and they’ve taken it to a whole new level. ‘The Hemp Revolution’ explores the modern day hemp industry – it’s sustainable & ecological qualities, as well as the (unfounded) taboo and stigma surrounding its use. Why do petroleum based products have a monopoly on most industries, when there are much more sustainable materials that we should be using? There may be a lot of conspiracies surrounding hemp and its uses, but there’s no denying the fact that the fashion industry is one of the most damaging industries in the world and we all need work towards un-doing the damage we’ve done, before it’s too late.
