Git Skoglund, a Swedish textile researcher, journalist and Cannabis Business Times columnist, has published a new book exploring hemp weaving and textiles.

“Cannabis Textiles: In Hemp Garden Cultures” explores both traditional and manually manufactured hemp textiles production from seed to shelf. The book also shares ways to distinguish hemp fibers and fabrics from textiles made of similar plants, such as hop, flax and cotton.
