Films About Hemp
We source the industrial hemp for our durable Workwear line from the mountains of Northern China, but now we’re investing in a small family farm in Bourbon County, Kentucky to grow organic hemp. Our hope is to bring hemp’s soil-rejuvenating properties closer to home and help American farmers make a good living on a living planet.
Natural. Misunderstood. Legal. This is the story of hemp in the United States. A forbidden fiber in the U.S. since 1970, hemp has taken the heat for almost five decades. Until the Farm Bill passed in December of 2018, 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.

Industrial hemp is a crop that has the potential to lower the environmental impacts of textile production, empower small-scale farmers and create jobs in a wide variety of industries. Two non-profit groups, Fibershed and Growing Warriors, are working to reintroduce industrial hemp into Kentucky—and eventually U.S. agriculture.
