Plant fibres & textiles - magazines


HEMP is the leading journalistic voice in the dynamic global hemp industry for both the hemp producer and consumer, from entrepreneurs to environmental activists to businesses working on the latest technological and scientific breakthroughs.

We believe that the hemp plant is more than hull and seed; its legal production has important repercussions in the realms of agricultural advancement, environmental sustainability, criminal justice, and the energy sector.


Textile History

is dedicated to the study of all aspects of textile and dress history. Interdisciplinary in approach, international in scope and covering all periods of history, this peer-reviewed journal, published continuously since 1969, serves as a forum in which scholars and practitioners from many disciplines share their work, throwing new light on the past, exploring emerging trends and technologies, and developing the study of society through textiles.

Journal for Weavers, Spinners & Dyers

The Journal exists to further the aims of the Association and to provide:

  • an interesting and informative magazine for those involved in the crafts
  • an opportunity for the exchange of ideas
  • instructive articles to encourage wider experimentation
  • an effective advertising space for suppliers

The Journal is published on behalf of the Association of Guilds of Spinners Weavers and Dyers. A small team of enthusiastic volunteers publishes the Journal quarterly in spring, summer, autumn and winter.

It covers a wide range of textile subjects, including articles on historic textile techniques and cutting edge modern design. We published an extra issue in summer 2009 to celebrate the life and work of Peter Collingwood. Subscribers received the Peter Collingwood Issue as part of their subscription. It is now available as a back copy.


There’s a crash coming – a slap from Mother Nature. This isn’t pessimistic; it’s realistic.

The human impact on nature and on each other is accelerating and needs systemic change to reverse.

We’re not advocating poverty, or a hair-shirt existence. We advocate changes that will mean better lives for almost everyone.
