We love hemp... industrial hemp, that is. You should be wearing hemp clothing. Growing hemp is better for the earth than growing cotton.
Hemp is technically superior to cotton: hemp fibers are more durable, provide better UV protection, wick moisture, and are anti-microbial (this can sometimes be useful).
Sustainable fibers combined with a great fit; you'll like our hemp clothing.
After learning about bamboo being the wonder plant, why even bother using another plant for fabric? Because hemp is an amazing plant that lasts a lifetime. Hemp has been in use since 770 AD. Since that time, it has been used to make everything from rope to clothing, to paper. As a fabric, hemp filters UV light, so your skin is protected. It resists bacterial growth, so you won't smell, again, no guarantees about your personal habits, but we're not adding to the cause. Hemp has four times the strength of cotton so it won't weaken when washed.
A step away from cotton, the drape and hang of hemp has been compared to linen. Like a baseball glove you've had for ten years, hemp fabric becomes softer with use. Hemp also absorbs moisture quickly, keeping your body dry. Being one of the most durable fibers on earth, hemp isn't going anywhere for a long time, except out of our narrow-minded country. Hemp is illegal to grow in the US, even though the hemp plant is different from the marijuana plant and doesn't get anyone high. What you inhale is your business, but the business we're concerned with is bringing this great fabric back into the awareness of the public. We have alternatives to cotton and it's about time we really understood what those are.
Because hemp is more water-absorbent than cotton, it will retain dye better than any other fabric, keeping your colors from fading better than Tide can. Hemp also has a porous personality that allows it to breathe, keeping you cool in the summer. And like bamboo and wool, hemp is warmer in cooler weather.
About these shirts: Hemp shirts have a reputation for being scratchy. Not these shirts. These babies are soft.
