An introduction to sustainable hemp textiles



Join us online to listen to Hemp Textile Designer Laura Bossom talk who will offer you a brief introduction into hemp fashion.

As a civilisation, we have relied on industrial hemp for thousands of years for its strong strength and robust use as an industrial manufacturing material. Learn more about Britain's strong legacy working with this natural fibre.

There is also an opportunity to buy a swatch book and hemp fibre guide which we recommend purchasing before the event. This will enable the audience at home to connect with the fibre whilst Laura will talk through the processes and textures of the fabrics.
