Because growing hemp is illegal in the US, our hemp comes from industrial hemp plants grown in China. And while technically not certified organic, it’s grown as organically as possible. Thanks to its natural heartiness, hemp doesn’t require any chemical pesticides or fertilizers, which makes it’s safer for the farmers that grow it as well as the land it’s grown on. In fact, this drought resistant plant does wonders for the soil it’s grown in. Farmers who grow hemp are able to plant food crops in the same field immediately after harvest—something not possible with a lot of other crops.
Once hemp is processed into fabric, it resembles linen in a lot of ways. It’s lightweight and remarkably breathable. It washes well, and because we blend ours with other materials like organic cotton, recycled polyester, and spandex, it doesn’t wrinkle as much as linen does.
