The Hemp Launch to Heal the World

While that’s a lofty headline and sounds like a claim similar to the 90s diet pill fen-phen being great for your health, I am telling you the truth. And these pants will not be recalled by the FDA.

At this time last year, I rebranded Swankety Swank and launched the new website with the Hemp Collection. After a year of sewing samples, traveling around the country, getting opinions and testing fabrics, I am certain that the launch of the hemp fleece trousers are going to plant a seed that will change everything. You will never know a pants fabric that is more rugged, more cozy, smooth on the outside, “fleecy soft” on the inside and as long lasting as these. And you’ll only find them exclusively from Swankety Swank.

But first, here’s a photo of Rad in a Hemp Duster that is also being launched because doesn’t he look cool? When I told him at our photoshoot that I’d have him wear the duster with a tee that I cut up and would scrawl a positive and semi rebellious word that epitomizes his generation, he called it out. I knew it was perfect. That intuitive knowing from being in a high vibration creative flow state is always genius.

Why the word “feminist” is semi-rebellious is a story to be unpacked by better writers than I, and it goes along with the idea of hemp saving the world. The alignment of equality for women, equality for all humans, protecting our Earth, and healing it is all tied up with us- EACH of us as individuals! Continue reading

Fashion Finds: Eco Chic Fashion with Soft Layers

From the moment Bianca slipped into this gorgeous black dress, it was pure magic.

The hemp/organic cotton ribbed jersey stretch is super soft and the black bamboo/organic cotton is slightly see thru. It was obvious that our model and muse felt amazing in this dress. It has a light, airy quality that feels like a whisper on the skin.

We paired it with the spruce soy/organic cotton shrug that is equally soft and sensual. It is also available in moss green organic cotton/bamboo blend. Add the easy, sensual, sophisticated layer to your wardrobe here.

Happy Hemp Day

Smooth Sailing Ahead
Smooth Sailing Ahead

I’ve been talking about a new clothing line for over 6 months, but I am finally on the home stretch of my 20 pages of business plan. I can see the finish line for that and the beginnings of a new Swankety Swank venture! I am excited for the future as any version of this plan will be outstanding. (There are tiers of output depending on the funding.)

I’ve been dreaming and sketching. The first collection will be inspired by The White Place in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It is earthy and magical, with white light rock castles and topaz skies.
