Jeans are not just a pair of pants, and hemp is not just another plant.

We all know that a great pair of jeans does a hell of a lot more than keep your legs covered.

A great pair of jeans blends comfort, fashion, good looks, and style with a dash of sex appeal. 

Jeans are a staple.

Like a great bottle of wine, jeans only get better as they age. Every tear, fade, and stretch add to their character. 

Similarly, hemp is not just another fibrous plant. 

Used by mankind for centuries, this miracle of nature can be used to clean up oil spills, build energy efficient homes, create sustainable plastics, and its seeds are undoubtedly one of the worlds most promising super foods. 

When woven into fabric, the magic continues.

Hemp fabric is strong, breathable, absorbent, and has amazing anti-microbial properties. 

Can you imagine combining the power of jeans and hemp!?

That's what Hemp Blue is all about.

Our goal is to create an environmentally friendly and sustainable designer denim brand made entirely out of agricultural hemp.

What's the catch?

Growing hemp in the United States is illegal in most states. While we consumer more hemp products than any country on Earth, American farmers are not allowed to grow the hemp we need to make our jeans!

Due to shady back-room deals, closed in a smoke filled Manhattan suite between robber-barons of the early twentieth century, agricultural hemp is classified as a schedule 1 drug.

Just like heroin, LSD, or ecstasy.

What a sham.

Although a member of the cannabis family, hemp is not weed. You could smoke hemp all day long and never get high.

The untold truth is that a few billionaires decided they needed to protect their interests in the paper and logging industries, and agricultural hemp was their biggest competitor. And their victim.

By supporting our campaign, you will be taking a stand to right this ridiculous injustice. 

Almost a hundred years ago, a greedy cartel of unscrupulous tycoons pulled the wool over our country's eyes.

Today we can take back our freedom.

By sliding your legs into a pair of awesome Hemp Blue jeans, you'll be doing more than just looking great.

YOU'LL BE WEARING THE TRUTH!

What are the benefits of growing hemp?

Hemp can, and will, play an important role in building a more sustainable future for our kids and grandkids. 

  • The cultivation of hemp requires no pesticides, fungicides, herbicides and ads nitrates back into the soil! Did you know that 50% of all the harsh chemicals used today are used in growing cotton?
  • Hemp uses 1/3 less water when being grown and half as much when being processed.
  • One acre of hemp can produce as much paper as 2 - 4 aces of trees, and has a growing cycle of only a few months, instead of a few years.
  • Hemp extracts up to 4 times the amount of carbon dioxide than trees.
  • Agricultural hemp can be used as:
  • An extremely efficient insulation material for energy efficient buildings.
  • A sustainable source of super foods, high in protein and essential fatty acids.
  • A sustainable source for creating paper products.
  • Natural infection-resistant linens for hospitals and bandages for trauma patients.
  • Non chemically processed hygiene products. (This alone could save hundreds of lives per year.)
  • Naturally infection-resistant linens for hospitals and bandages for trauma patients. Some European hospitals already use hemp bedding to reduce the spread of infections.
  • Industrial absorbents for cleaning up oil spills without harming the surrounding ecosphere.
  • Nutritional supplements and medical benefits from CBD oils.
  • Over 20,000 other incredible products!
  • HAVE WE CONVINCED YOU YET?

Who’s the creative mind behind Hemp Blue?

Designer denim is only as good as the designer behind the brand.

We're proud to say we've got this covered!

With his passion for detail, and en eye for the latest fashion trends, Alfredo Settimio brings world-class European fashion sense to the Hemp Blue brand.

Having worked with Armani Jeans, Seven For All Mankind, and Wrangler Blue Bell, Alfredo knows how to make an awesome pair of jeans.

Each and every Hemp Blue garment marries his design vision with our company's unflinching belief in the truth of agricultural hemp and a sustainable future for all.

We are fighting for the legalization of hemp farming. 

We are fighting for sustainable American made fashion.

We are fighting for your right to wear the truth and look great at the same time.

Why is there still cotton in our denim?

As you know, hemp is grown all over the world - but not in the USA.

It is being cultivated for a myriad of amazing products from food to lotion to care parts. 

Unfortunately, a lot of hemp fabric being made today is of poor quality. 

Even worse, we can't ethically support the labor conditions of many hemp fabric manufactures in third-world countries. 

This drastically limits our choices.

To guarantee that you'll be receiving the quality of product you can expect, we've come to understand that we have to move forward step by step.

We have carefully chosen the best hemp fabric available from Japan, Italy, and Thailand. 

With the funds raised by your support of this campaign, we will be able to secure a sustainable supply chain of quality hemp fabrics produced in an ethical and sustainable way.

Until then, the cotton that we have sourced is the best available in the United States.

As this movement advances, we will incorporate more and more hemp fabric into our products.

With time and your support, fields of high quality US grown hemp will sprout and grow from sea to shining sea across America.

I’m in. What sizes are available?

All pieces are true to size. We will be offering men’s jeans in 30, 32, 34, 36, 38, 40 and women’s jeans in 23, 24, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31. Jackets and shirts will come in size small, medium and large (and extra large for men).

How else can I help?

None of this would be possible without you. We are starting the movement towards a more sustainable future, but YOU are the movement. After you support us, we would love if you helped spread the word. Email, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter – whatever you prefer!

Riesgos y desafíos

1. One of the biggest challenges of working with hemp fabric is the supply chain. We worked hard with our suppliers to find a solution, and can now avoid this issue entirely. We own all of the fabric and have it in Los Angeles. Our manufacturers are ready to start production when the Kickstarter campaign ends.

2. Quality is another challenge when working with hemp fabric, mainly because it is a lost art. We spent months testing hemp fabrics from all over the world, and we know that we have brought you the best of what hemp can do.

3. The founders have both worked together and have had separate successful brands in the apparel industry, and adding Alfredo’s experience was the perfect hempfecta. The crew has spent the last year working together to sprout Hemp Blue and to bring it to harvest.

4. The biggest problem we could run into is that we have so many amazing backers that it takes us just a little bit longer in the hemp denim production, mainly in the importing of premium hemp from our fairly traded sources in Italy, Japan and Thailand.

5. Though we don’t expect any problems with the campaign or fulfillment, we’ll keep you updated throughout the campaign as well as after, especially if an issue arises.
