February 20, 2012 – HempDeeDee!My handmade hemp fabric Kindle, etc. covers

As a longtime hemp fabric enthusiast, I have designed and sewn 5 samples, made of hemp fabric. These are covers which can be used to cover your Kindle, or your Tablet and/or your Ipad. 

(c) HempDeeDee! 2012  There a 3+ sizes depending on your preference. Here is a quick video of the sample designs, etc.

This is the text of my workshop/info booth poster that I had up at UVIC – Fraser Law building 159, yesterday (Feb 19) for Hemp Awareness Week.

WILL A HEMP-TEXTILE  ECONOMY EVER BE ON THE HORIZON IN BRITISH COLUMBIA’S FUTURE? 

HEMP FABRIC MADE PRODUCTS IN SOCIETY

  • Hemp fabrics are a valuable and constructive resource in our society.
  • They can be an attractive, ubiquitous and cost effective feature in daily life.
  • The growing of hemp crop for conversion to fabric is useful to all.
  • Industrial hemp for the purposes of making fabric does not contain the chemical and biological properties of marijuana, THC.
  • British Columbia should not be deprived of the legitimate uses of industrial hemp for textile-use.
  • Talk to your politicians!
  • www.100MileHouse.com is the model to follow.
  • It is entirely possible and appropriate to enjoy the benefits of hemp products, as has been shown by their studies here in BC.
  • Hemp fabric is a legitimate and ‘stand-alone’ product.
  • Separate its application and build the potential for industrial textile hemp plantations here in BC.
  • Build the potential for fabric manufacturing in British Columbia through a momentum carrying the needed public message.
  • Build the potential for hemp-fabric factories in British Columbia by talking to people about the need for innovation locally around industrial fabric hemp.
    • Currently it is economically ‘constraining’ for wholesalers to import hemp fabric to any large extent. Store may only carry a few hemp fabric rolls whilst carrying dozens of cotton and polyester.
    • Equally for ordinary people there are economic hurdles to purchasing wholesale hemp fabric, here in BC, for the purpose of manufacture/local design work since it basically remains a speciality item at this time.
    • For a retail customer and/or local ‘seamstress’ to purchase hemp fabric, at present it costs upward of $16 a/yard. Wholesale-hemp fabric is also not readily available.
    • This is because the demand for hemp fabric is not well-documented.
    • Many people like hemp-fabric made clothing when they see it.
    • But many other people are not aware of its benefits. They need to be!
    • The point is: Hemp can be grown locally.
    • Hemp fabric can be made here in BC.
    • There is nothing stopping us!
    • Join the movement
    • Investors!
    • People with industrial hemp growing expertise!
    •  Please get in touch with mediageode AT yahoo DOT com
    • www.100MileHouse.com has set the bar: These plantations are designed for construction-use hemp products.
    • Now… we need to grow similar plantations for HEMP-TEXTILE FABRIC USE!
