I expect this book will become The Bible of traditional hemp textiles found in many cultures across the globe.
“Git Skoglund is a Swedish textile researcher and journalist, who has studied the Cannabis plant and its many useful products since the early 1990s. Her primary focus is hemp textiles made by traditional cultures, and her writings are informed by extensive historical research, field journeys, laboratory studies, and exhibition productions. In Cannabis Textiles, she explores traditional and manually manufactured hemp textiles, primarily from botanical and garden history perspectives, shedding light on the peoples behind their production from seed to sewing, while sharing methods to distinguish hemp fibers and fabrics from similar looking hop, flax, nettles and cotton. The text is richly illustrated with a wide variety of hemp textiles from Europe and Asia.”
