Image right is of Mina Hegaard and a cousin at the Minawear booth on 19 August at the Solfest Fetival in Northern California.
Hemp and other natural fibre clothing items were on display from a number of US firms, including Hemp Traders of Los Angeles.
This is one of California's biggets weekend festivals. Hemp is de rigeur in that state, where the legislature is willing to allow hemp cultivation, once a part of California agriculture. The legal system permits the governor to veto what other people vote on, so we will see whether Arnie decides to terminate hope or act sensibly. If he goes against the wishes of the people, I hope its hasta la vista! (But let's hope he does not move on to Washington where he can fulfil his dream of being a dictator!)
