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.

I knew it was perfect. That intuitive knowing from being in a high vibration creative flow state is always genius.

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

In the spirit of sustainability and low waste, Yabette wanted to find ways to use the off-cut scraps of hemp that were left from her currents rolls. We love the way they came together as capelets. Some of them have added liners in luxuriously warm and strong hemp fleece making them deliciously cozy around the neck and shoulders. Perfect for a layer-happy city like San Francisco. We love the silhouette a capelet gives- emphasizing the shoulders in proportion to the waist. The use of the off-cuts makes each one of these capelets unique. Continue reading
