This Buddha head was taken from a temple in Ayutthaya long ago, and as legend has it, the thieves for whatever reason left it at the feet of a nearby tree. Since then, vines have grown around this ancient artwork, making it seem like a living part of the tree. It was quite surreal to see firsthand. www.paulweeksphotography.com

Roots Loves Hemp! 

Ever since we first opened our doors back in 1973, we built our reputation on being ecologically friendly: bringing you the best in earth friendly fabrications. That hard-earned legacy is what led our designers to create an exclusive offering of Hemp products.

 Grown and woven in the Qingdao province of China, our hemp products have the distinction of being Organic Certified. Grown without pesticides, we like to call our hemp a ‘natural performance fabric’ says Syd Beder, Roots’ Merchandise Director; organic hemp products have anti-microbial properties and are considered by many to be hypoallergenic and non-irritating to the skin. 

Renowned for their quality and dedication to old world weaving techniques the Qingdao Hemp Factory grows their own product, processes the hemp and then spins their own yarn before turning it fabric. As foremost experts in the production of hemp and organic cotton, the Qingdao factory took their passion for earth friendly manufacturing and have made their establishment entirely solar powered…. did we mention the kitchen garden of fruits and vegetables they grow for their employees?
