We get an initial negative response to our products being made in China, but China is the world capital of hemp textiles. We can’t grow in the US and Canada grows hemp for seed, not fiber. We have mainly ladies who produce the cordage and they are paid by the hour, not by piece-work. They ride bikes to work (they don’t live at work), and they made over 2 times minimum wage for their region. There are no young labors. Most ladies are in the 20′s-50′s.
