What is Hemp? 

Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant grown mostly for its seeds, fibers and oil. It is not marijuana. This plant is specifically bred for a low content of tetrahydrocannibanol (THC), the principal psychoactive agent in marijuana. It's used for everything from health food, fiber/textiles, building materials, paper, recycled plastic, body products and bio-fuel.

Why is a quality sustainable fabric? 

Hemp is an amazing natural fiber that grows without fertilizers and doesn't deplete the soil from its nutrients. In addition, it requires minimal attention, making it easy to harvest. On top of all of that, hemp is pest tolerant, which means it needs no agro-chemicals.

What makes Hemp a great fiber for clothing?

It's fibers are an incredibly strong and durable natural textile with the ability to keep its shape. Hemp fibers mix well with other elements, therefore textiles mixed with hemp fiber result in garments that are soft and warm, but much durable than textiles with 100% cotton or linen. This is due to hemp's fibers high cellulose content. 

In layman's terms, 5 reasons you should shop hemp clothing are...

  1. Is Easy to Produce
  2. Is Environmental Friendly
  3. Creates durable fabric
  4. Clothing keeps it's shape
  5. Is incredibly soft and breathable
