Our Mindful Hemp Shirt is fashioned after Thai Fisherman's V-Neck Shirt, which is worn in white by laypersons when they enter a monastery or Buddhist retreat. They are also very popular with farmers (worn with a wide-brimmed straw hat) who need a light, breathable shirt that will protect their skin from the hot sun. Of course, the classically simple styling makes it a great favorite with everyone else for everyday wearing too!
You just can't help but feel calm and peaceful when you slip into the Mindful Hemp Shirt. The name says it all: it's simple, sustainable, and mindfully made. It's perfect for meditation and Tai Chi because it already puts the mind in a slow state going into the meditation.
The 100% European hemp linen fabric is light and crisp (so it floats caressingly on the skin) and breathes very well. In the Ivory color, it's perfect for keeping the heat out while still letting you benefit from the sun. And hemp is legendary for wicking away moisture at a fast pace, so you never feel trapped in perspiration, even on the hottest of days.
Eco tidbits: Simplicity and Fairness: Simple living is less violent and less exploitative. When we live in complexity, our needs are so great in terms of energy and material goods that we live at the expense of others. As we simplify our homes, our clothes, and our eating habits, not only is less work needed to supply us but also less effort to maintain our way of life, as well.
As the people of the world who are now exploited begin to get a fair return for their labor, prices will rise. We must expect this and be willing to pay the costs, otherwise we are hypocrites of the first water, wanting the world's people to be well off yet still insisting that our bananas be cheap. When the people picking the bananas in Honduras, tapping the rubber trees in Malaysia, mining tin in Bolivia, and making shoes in Brazil get the same return for their labor that we do, our bananas and boots and tires and tin (and fair trade clothing—ed.) will cost more. — from A Handmade Life by WM.S.
