Hemp Gets A Makeover

For many people Hemp is associated with dowdy, tie dye hippy clothes, a pity because hemp is a fantastic natural fiber, one of the strongest fibers on the planet and environmentally friendly to boot! Enamore is a clothes label based in Brighton, UK ... No hippy clothes in sight here! Just gorgeous, beautifully crafted dresses, tops, jackets, accessories and sexy lingerie; worth every penny in your pockets as hemp, with proper care, is a very durable fabric [Up to 7 times longer lasting than cotton] and you will be able to hand them down to your children ...well, maybe not the knickers!
Designed by Ayten Gasson for Enamore these beautiful Sapphire hemp silk knickers, trimmed with black ruffled lace, are priced at £32.00, each piece is handmade to order in the UK,

This gorgeous forties style dress,made from woven hemp and silk fabric with polka-dot piping detail, is available at £150; hand made to order in the UK!

This bag has been designed for Enamore by Natalie Jayne from recycled upholstery fabrics, priced at £105. All of Natalie Jayne bags are made to order and it is possible for Enamore to incorporate any variations on material and details that you might like. No two bags are exactly the same, each bag in this design comes with a unique mirror and fastens with a magnetic claps and interior zip. I am sold and inspired!
