Hemp is soft and breathable. It’s airy, natural and light. Our hemp collection is made from hemp blended with TENCEL® lyocell and organic cotton for strength and durability that exceeds that of linen. Once a major crop in the United States, industrial hemp is fast-growing and can be turned into fabric, food, building materials and other renewable products. A forbidden fiber in the U.S. since 1970, hemp has taken the heat for almost five decades. Hemp was federally illegal to grow for commercial purposes, making it risky for businesses to invest in a new crop that was incorrectly classified as a drug.
