I have to amit this sorta rubs me the wrong way. Not so much the idea of making clothes greener, thats surely a plus, but Bruce's comment about localy made clothes is more dead on the mark for me.
For years I've put off making my own clothes just because A) Dress patterns & fabric are almost as much as the finished clothing itself & B) If the fabric is made in sweat shops & shipped long distances then Iam still contribuiting to the global prombles we currently have. In the end its sorta lose-lose.

What a novel way of 'going green.' Who knew that you could even get hemp silk or bamboo jersey?

I wonder how this will impact those who work in the central American, Asian and other sweatshops who will make these clothes. I also wonder the advantage of wearing clothing shipped across the globe between manufacturer and consumer.

Wouldn't buying locally produced products be considered green, too?
