Some great news from Hong Kong that will hopefully have a considerable impact in China, too, over time.

Still from Ecotextile News, more great news, about hemp getting the green light, finally, in New South Wales. The Sydney Morning Herald article from yesterday is here. I can personally attest to the high quality of some of the hemp fabrics out there, and look forward to one day of being able to use locally grown hemp.

On local, a friend works for Hedrena Textiles, an Australian company using Australian wool. As I understand, some fabrics are manufactured offshore, but a substantial amount is made here - something rarely seen these days.
