55% hemp and 45 % organic cotton! This Light, and the Dark Hamp/Organic Cotton Shirt, are our most sustainable shirts. It is sewn in Portland, Oregon.
Hemp fabrics have an earthy, natural character reflecting the biologic and mechanical processes used to produce the fabrics. The variations in the yarn gives these hemp textiles their timeless beauty and style.
Hemp requires no pesticides, no herbicides, and only moderate amounts of fertilizer.
Fabrics made from hemp are stronger, more absorbent, more durable, and better insulating than cotton. And they don't stretch out of shape.
