Ministry of Hemp report …While most hemp clothing companies trade in little more than simple t-shirts, Hemp Horizon offer a diverse range of items, featuring everything from tight-fitting high-necked dresses to more free-flowing outfits with elegant bows.
Hemp Horizon is redefining women’s hemp fashion and spreading awareness about hemp’s potential.
Their products blend hemp with other organic materials, demonstrating not only its versatility, but also how much hemp production has been refined over recent years.
“Hemp is very much misunderstood,” said Karen Kay, head designer at Hemp Horizon.
“Forty years ago the fabrics made from hemp were crude, and didn’t have the refinement that today’s mills can produce,” Kay told us. “Now, when blended with fine silks and other organic yarns, hemp is soft yet durable.”
Kay works closely with business partner Steve Esser, who looks after marketing. Zoey Kay models the products.
We spoke to Karen Kay about the values behind the brand, the development process, and why hemp is a perfect fit for the future of fashion.
