I’ve been sewing with hemp canvas, twills and muslin for years. No matter if I make slipcovers, shades, pillows or bedding, I’m always very happy with the comfort and beauty of natural hemp textiles. Read about my favorite hemp fabrics here.

I look forward to the day when hemp textile manufacturing returns home using American-grown hemp fiber.
Thank you to all of the devoted individuals who are working hard to make this happen. Take a look at this inspiring video:
