Cotton, so versatile... denim, jersee.

    Hemp is similarly versatile; it can be made into denim, jersey, and even "silk" (quite nice actually), among many other variants. Plus, it doesn't need pesticides and herbicides as cotton does typically (though cotton can be grown organically, currently at substantially higher cost).
      I have a hemp wallet I bought last year, and it is in tatters. I have a denim wallet that went years and years before it stared to become threadbare. Granted the hemp wallet is a slightly rougher thread and weave, but I am still disappointed :-/

      Oh, and linen is nice too. Plus you get all that healthy flax oil.
