This looks like your classic chambray but with added eco credentials! It is made from a blend of organic cotton/hemp and then hemp and organic cotton yarns that are taken from garment leftovers. Although the yarn is red, because it is woven with white it has a slightly pink look.

Hemp is a densely grown plant that literally literally chokes out any competing plants. This means harsh chemical herbicides aren’t necessary. Hemp also naturally reduces pests, so no pesticides are needed. It also returns 60-70% of the nutrients it takes from the soil. Hemp production requires much less water than cotton say, and only requires a small amount of land to cultivate.

You could use this for tops, dresses, trousers and shirts.
