Pratt Institute’s Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator, a hub for ethical fashion and design, recently posted a blog addressing sustainable textile production and introduced us to 9 women farmers who are setting the trends. And while the general public is paying more attention to the way food is grown and the benefits of responsible land management, there is a rising demand for fiber grown with land and community health in mind too. And whether they produce cotton, wool, hemp or natural dyes, these women are some of the top models for sustainable fibersheds. Meet them here.

Fashion and beauty inspire hope and appreciation. Life is full of inspiration and I love sharing those incredible moments of enthusiasm and delight. Natural materials, especially fabrics in Hemp are a great wear, as is Bamboo. I know that some day we will see green growing everywhere, Hemp and Bamboo.
