This is a bias tank I created from hemp silk. Hemp is far more renewable than many traditional fibers, and requires fewer chemical fertilizers and pesticides to grow, making it an ideal fiber for environmentally conscious garments. Until recently, buying used and vintage clothing was virtually the only means of being both "green" and fashionable. We are fortunate that today, many designers and manufacturers have jumped on board with consumer demand for ecological clothing that maintains a sophisticated sense of style.
