WHY HEMP? Hemp is overall, the strongest, most durable, longest lasting natural fiber on Earth. With it’s unparalleled strength, resiliency and antimicrobrial properties, it is the finest fiber for textiles.
The hollow shaft structure of the fiber retain warmth in the winter and insulate the body from warm temperatures in the summer. What’s more, it requires no synthetic pesticides or herbicides to grow, making hemp a sustainable and responsible choice.
Among it’s many phenomenal properties, fabrics containing at least 50 percent hemp, block the sun’s ultraviolet rays more effectively than do other fabrics. Combined with anti-microbial properties, hemp does not trap odor causing bacteria like cotton and most synthetics., making it an ideal choice for the outdoors and active lifestyles.
Our clothing lines have gone through many seasons of change. We are curretnly concentrating our efforts on spreading the word about hemp with our hemp blend t-shirts and hoodies. We can make any custom print for your band, team, event, or organization. Thanks for considering hemp.
Our catalog shows just a sample of what is possible. We would love to hear about any new ideas using hemp textiles. Hemp comes in hundreds of different weaves from heavy canvas to delicate linens. There are also many blends such as hemp/silk, hemp/wool, hemp/recycled polyester and more.
Over the years many good people have come to us for help in getting their hemp line up launched. We are always happy and willing to lend our expertise and help make some waves of change. Check out some of the projects that we have been involved with over the years:
Cassandra Carvajal is inspired by her appreciation and respect for natures beauty and resources. Fabrics that come from renewable sources were chosen because they can be replenished by natural processes at a rate comparable to their rate of consumption. These designs avoid the use of new petroleum based products such as polyester, rayon, and acrylic that are made from non-renewable sources.
Cassandra Carvajal’s finely crafted vinatage inspired designs have been made using natures finest natural fibers, and when possible, vintage and recycled materials. They have been meticulously cut and carefully constructed to accentuate the natural curves of a woman, providing a tailor made feel.
Drape yourself in eco friendly style and allow these designs to reveal the inherent feminine beauty in you.
We were glad to work with the great guys from Local while they were developing their eco venture. Dan Beauchene and Chad Jackson vsited us early in 2007 after hearing about our hemp surfboard project. Chad lent his great talents and insight to make the hemp surfboards their best. We worked together for several years in promoting the hemp surfboard and eco lifestyle. We are thankful for the many good times and memories. We are very happy and proud to see the incredible waves that Local has made in inspiring folks to get in touch with their ”alter eco.” Here are some photos of our early adventures. VISIT SITE
