Ms Filippone has been at the forefront of the design, manufacturing and importing of heavy duty upholstery hemp fabrics, hemp t-shirts, and hemp blend textiles for the past decade. Her Chinese hemp fabrics and European hemp fabrics are produced from exceptional quality natural hemp fiber and hemp yarns.

In her capacity as President and Owner of the company, Ms. Filippone will work primarily out of ET's international offices and focus her attention on research and development of new products and new markets for natural-fiber products. She will also coordinate international logistics to support the retail and commercial sales efforts.

As CEO, Pradier will focus on strategic direction of the company in coordination with Ms Filippone's vision as well as on marketing and branding efforts and serving the enterprise commercial clients of ET. Pradier comes to this position after working for two and a half years with Filippone as business mentor. He has a wealth of experience in managing a variety of organizations of up to 400 employees in multiple international locations. He has also negotiated contracts for the US Government with other countries.
