(NaturalNews) The free movement used in skateboarding has transcended into a clothing line that uses only natural fibers and prohibits the use of chemicals. Goods distributed by Satori Movement are made with alternative fabrics, and cater to a unique crowd of like-minded individuals.

Satori Movement www.satorimovement.com produces and wholesales high-quality apparel made of hemp, bamboo, recycled, and organic fibers. These fibers avoid the use of chemical farming, which maintains a healthier soil formation for the growth of cleaner foods and fibers.

The website statement describes Satori Movement as "a unique company created by a team of skateboarders who share similar ideals and beliefs". From Japanese Buddhism, the word satori means 'realize.' This statement of realization can be reached by any meditation, including skateboarding. "Through our dedication to skateboarding we are producing the highest quality products which reflect our cultural and environmental awareness. The Satori Movement brings you 'the way of skateboarding.'"

The product line at Satori Movement is decent. Besides selling skateboard wheels on the website, goods and clothing are highlighted as proudly containing hemp. They include shirts, pants, sweats, headwear, women’s wear, accessories, stickers and videos. And as you scroll through the selections, what you might first notice is all the color in the fabric.

I have never been very good at skateboarding because I have a bad sense of balance, but I do like the idea of hemp and alternative fibers being used to make clothing and goods. Most of the products in their clothing line have a pretty standard blend of 55% hemp and 45% cotton fibers, to make them softer and more wearable. After all, 100% hemp is great in theory, but a difficult endeavor to apply to the manufacturing of clothing. The fabric is just too unbearably uncomfortable to wear on its own.

The accessories page, unfortunately, is pretty much the standard fare. The page of pants styles is slim pickings and leaves you wanting much more. It is definitely a specialized clothing line, so everything may not always be to your liking. But that doesn’t mean there aren't hidden gems in the bunch. The shirts section is impressive. I especially like the headwear section, with a variety of different hats of different styles, from trek caps to beanies to trucker caps. But the selection is still minimal all the way around. It would be nice eventually to see pages of hats and every type of shirt imaginable, or a pair of pants that aren’t jeans or Zen pants. Have you ever worn hemp jeans? It is probably one of the fashion statements that hemp will never make, no matter how soft the fibers are made.
