Maria Brorsson, Buying Director Fashion Industry is a textile hemp enthusiast currently on maternity leave 

After 20 years withing the fashion industry, mainly stationed in SEA, Maria asked herself: 

“Would it be possible to produce a t-shirt from scratch to finished product in Sweden?”

She longed to find alternatives for textile production after nearly two decades in the industry buying clothes mainly from Asia for different Scandinavian brands. She accidentally came across the great qualities of the hemp fibre and started her journey by growing hemp on her parent’s farm. Here more about her journey in the Textile Session.
