Let's get something straight. Hemp is our hero.
Hemp's Ancient Past
The hemp fibres used to make clothing is from industrial hemp. Unlike its close cousin marijuana, industrial hemp, has extremely low levels of the psychoactive compound THC. Nope, you can't smoke or get high from our hemp clothing!
In the 1930's, the cotton and synthetic fabric industries launched a smear campaign that associated industrial hemp with marijuana and in a nutshell, wiped out the industrial hemp industry... until now. Industrial hemp is back baby! This amazing plant is once again being used for its highly nutritious seeds as well as its fibres which can be used to for a wide variety of products including textiles, rope and building materials.
Hemp & The Environment
Did you know that industrial hemp has the potential to clean the atmosphere and protect the environment and even reverse the damage done to it?
Dubbed the 'King of Carbon Sequestration' industrial hemp absorbs 4 times more CO2 than trees! It takes as little as 90 days to cultivate and requires significantly less water than cotton.
Hemp also supplies its own nutrients to the soil, which replenishes its fertility, and needs no toxic chemicals, pesticides or insecticides in order to grow.
Hemp As Fabric
So comfy you'll want to live in it, hemp is one of the most durable and economically viable all-natural threads.
Hemp clothing gets EVEN softer with each wash and its tensile strength in 8 times stronger than cotton! Hemp has natural antibacterial and anti-fungal properties which means our hemp clothes are stink proof (yes we've put them under the stink test) and a great choice for people with allergies or sensitive skin.
Hemp fabric is also highly breathable and moisture wicking, absorbing up to 20% of its own weight while still feeling dry to the touch.
