Hemp vs Cotton
So...what is hemp? Hemp is a variety of Cannabis, which is currently federally illegal to cultivate in the United States. Although hemp and marijuana come from the same plant, they have very different industrial applications. Hemp is one of the best natural resources from which thousands of sustainable products can be made.
Today, over half a billion dollars worth of hemp products are imported into the United States every year due to regulations on growing the crop domestically. Hemp textile manufacturing from seed is currently non-existent in the United States. Most large manufacturers around the world only offer the status quo, cotton.
The commercial hemp industry in the U.S. is still in its infancy stage. States like Washington and Colorado have only recently lifted the ban on cultivating hemp.
The New Standard
Many may know hemp clothing for being durable, yet rough and coarse like rope. Modern-day advancements and new methods of processing hemp fibers have changed this.
We've worked with and felt many types of hemp shirts, and we are proud to say that the fabric we use is the most comfortable, even more so than a premium cotton shirt. Through our experience, we’ve developed a softer, more durable and breathable shirt. You have to wear it to believe it!

Our goal of $25K allows us to put a perfectly cut hemp T-shirt in your hands and bring them to industry trade shows.
Risks and challenges
There may be risks that products will require a second production if we surpass the fundraising goal substantially. We are sourcing a rare hemp yarn and then making shirts to our specifications. It would require 7-10 business days to bring in the yarn from its source and up to 30 days for production if reserves are depleted before all rewards are fulfilled.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
