Evelyne has done extended research on the possibility to source this hemp fibre and textile locally and the conclusion is :
That partially importing from China is actually a good way to guarantee you high quality, ethically and ecologically grown hemp fibre. We are well aware that China does not have the best reputation concerning their work ethics and this has made us extra careful in choosing who we work with.

We learned that if you screen your suppliers well, there are actually some really pleasant surprises that can be found where you least expect them.
