Founded in 1999, THTC- The Hemp Trading Company – is an ethically driven underground clothing label, specialising in eco-friendly, politically-conscious hemp street wear.
Working alongside the lovely Aruba Red and Dulcie, who were very brave in the cold May weather, down by the canal in Dalston we snapped the new range of women’s garments which are available to purchase online here.
THTC’s new range of recycled hemp ladies’ garments is now available exclusively on the THTC web shop! The range, which has been designed by recycling pioneers My Only One is very limited edition, with no more than 30 pieces per style ever to be produced!
This range is expected to sell out very quickly, so why not grab yourself a piece of history while you can. THTC is the only company in the world to produce recycled hemp clothing!
If you use the voucher code ‘recycle’ at the online checkout you will be able to receive 20% off any of these, and all the rest of THTC’s range. This offer is for retail orders only, not for shop wholesale orders.
The range has been modeled so far by singer and model Dulcie Olivia.
Straight after the comedy night in Catford, I made my way down to funky Brixton town to go and Jam at the Jamm on Kennington Road, I’d just missed Rebel MC do his thing, but luckily caught DJ Snuff on the decks, Screaming Soul and DEFDFIRES performing on stage…Screaming Soul smashed it, heavy bass lines and dub infused beats alongside revolutionary conscious lyrics – our own Nas & Damian Marley duo, straight up! DDF next up with their double time raps and funky beats, big up Jazza on the dance moves still, Prymary Source, EL and Nemesis ripping up the mics, its been a while so it was extra special to see these guys nicing up the place, check out the myspace pages for a sample of the music…
Saturday night back at the Catford Broadway Theatre for a night of more laughter, hosted by funny man Richard Blackwood, who to some is at the best point of his career, with sharp jokes that simply leave people trying to catch their breath, up to date and supa fresh…Along with Felix Dexter, Kojo, Felicity Ethnic, Slim and Leo Mohammed as Mr Frazer…next show is the Bad boys of comedy, Catford again – 27th June, check it out…
Selma Nicholls, director of dance company Creative Engagement who run a dance studio at the Bernie Grant Arts centre in Tottenham, recently had news that the premises she runs her business from is soon to lose funding and she must find a new home, affecting many young people that use the studio for dance practice.
This event was therefore arranged as a fund raiser to help raise funds to relocate…the call for help went out, and dance crews all over responded, what we ended up with was a night of fantastic dance theatre, some of which blew me away. Hosted by Hakim Onibudo, director of Impact Dance UK and Performing on the night we had: Bird Gang, Uchenna, Ishimwa, E-Motionz, Carinne Gayle & Tashan Taylor, IronIncs and the night finished off with an amazing performance by Ballet Black.
Recent news has surfaced that the company may not have to relocate just yet, allowing more time to find a new home, watch this space, massive shout outs to all involved especially Selma for organising such a good event in so little time, all the dancers who responded to the calls for help! And everyone who turned up to support the night, much love.
