200 YEARS OF HISTORY WOVEN IN
Hemp: the sails of Columbus’ ships were woven of it. The Declaration of Independence was written on it. It was once America’s largest cash crop, used for fabric, rope, paper and more. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson even grew it on their plantations – as a matter of patriotic duty. So you can forget all about tie-dye, flower children and ahem, illicit activities. Hemp is an unsung hero of fabrics, well worth giving a second look.
Our prewashed soft hemp fabric is woven from the fiber in the stalks, not the outlawed leaves, so it’s 100% legal. One of the world’s strongest fibers, it's 3x stronger than cotton, lightweight, breathable and as comfortable as any summer shirt in your closet. It has a good-looking natural texture akin to linen – nice enough for dinner out – but slightly burlier, perfect for a Duluth man. What else could you want in the steamy summer months?
