Brides say 'I do' in organic frocks

The woman who recycles her newspapers, eats organic foods, and bikes or walks to work can now get married in an eco-friendly wedding dress.

The politically correct frock looks just like the traditional white model, but is actually made from a mix of organic and natural unbleached, undyed fibers. The designer is a German textile company, Hess Naturetextilien.

The company says one aim in designing the dress was to prove that hemp could be transformed into a sophisticated fabric.

The dress will be on exhibit at the Design Museum of London.
