Summer Star Haeske
Summer Star Haeske has spent many years working alongside the ‘pioneer of hemp’ in the U.S. Ms Barbara Filippone (her mother) in all areas of the hemp industry. She was an essential ingredient in the opening of EnviroTextiles more than ten years ago and has assisted in all phases of the company as well as the development, sales and importation of hemp textiles. Summer’s responsibilities include maintaining production for EnviroTextiles stock as well as shipping to multiple countries worldwide. Summer Star is currently supervising our sales team overall and is passionate about marketing hemp for a better sustainable future. As a current board member of HIA (Hemp Industries Association) she continues to educate the public about the product’s environmental, health, and biological advantages.
Some of Summer’s recent efforts include EnviroTextiles’ sponsorship for the “Introduction to Sustainable Business and Design” at the renowned Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) Fashion Show in New York. She was instrumental in providing hemp upholstery fabric for a segment on MTV’s “Pimp My Ride” that aired on Earth Day in 123 countries, including the ‘Tonite Show’ with Jay Leno. And Ford’s 2010 F350 received the SEMA car show’s Concept Award for ‘eco-innovation’ that Summer forged ahead with design ideas for the creator. She has organized and presented innumerable trade shows at ‘Green Fests’, and various hemp fashion shows from Aspen to Seattle and across the country.
Summer Star served as Vice President of the Hemp Industries Association (HIA) based in San Francisco and remains an active board member today of 15 years service. Her in-depth knowledge of hemp and natural fibers has positioned her as being a vital part of the management and sales team of EnviroTextiles LLC. Summer’s philosophy as well as her actions demonstrate that it is our social responsibility to create a better future for our planet and to post no limits in fashion or functionality when making the decision to go “green” and go hemp.
