America's Fine Hemp Apparel Brand

Hemp.Style will lead the rediscovery of hemp fabric and the reinvigoration of America’s textile industry, by becoming America’s foremost grown and made in the USA fine hemp apparel brand. 

In 2024, Hemp.Style will introduce an entirely new apparel line made from domestically grown hemp and organic cotton.

Colorado designed, manufactured & finished

Hemp.Style is committed to locally sourced labor and materials. Our garments are designed in coordination with Loopy Designs in Denver. Although the fabric will initially be sourced from North Carolina, all of the assembly, embroidery, finishing and packaging will be done locally.

15 Reasons For Hemp Fabric

Hemp Fabric’s Unique Attributes

  1. Antibacterial – blocks mold & mildew. Great if you sweat a lot or have sensitive skin. 
  2. Blocks odors - save time and energy by washing your clothes less often (because they don’t smell)
  3. Hypo-allergenic – great for sensitive skin.
  4. Blocks UV rays – great for skin.
  5. Hemp fibers don’t weaken after washes. Instead they get softer - making hemp fabric more comfortable.
  6. Hyper breathable and wicks away moisture – great for humid or sweaty days.
  7. Hemp retains its color and shape better than other natural fibers – so you can keep your favorite hemp garments for longer.  

Environmental Benefits

  1. Hemp can be grown without pesticides and chemicals – great for your skin and the planet.
  2. Hemp is a sustainable crop that can be grown almost anywhere. It grows quickly and uses only 1/20th the amount of water that cotton uses.
  3. Hemp is durable - 4x stronger than cotton.  It lasts longer.
  4. Adapts to weather – keeps you cool in the summer, but warmer in the winter.
  5. Hemp is a carbon negative crop, it absorbs CO2 from the air. This means it helps Mother Earth and cleans the air we breathe.

Economic Value

  1. American farmers will benefit from an additional crop that uses less water and pesticides, replenishes topsoil and has a short growing season that can be rotated with their usual crops.
  2. American textile manufactures will benefit from increased demand for American made hemp clothing.
  3. American workers will benefit up and down the supply chain, from farm and textile workers to assemblers to retail employees.
  • Seed

    This first step is extremely important. You need the right type of seed that will produce high quality long fibers and the greatest yeild in a given climate. Most seed has had to be imported, but we are finally beginning to produce our own domestic seed supply.

  • Farm

    Local entrepreneurial farmers have already harvested several seasons worth of industrial hemp. However, incorrect seed stock and lack of experience have meant mixed results. Plus the biggest market is for hemp oil, not the same plant as needed for fiber.

  • Fiber

    This is the raw material that will be made into fabric. Right now there is not enough dometic supply to feed the demand. Key bottlenecks include lack of supply of long fiber hemp and processing capacity, but these issues are quickly being addressed.

  • Yarn and Thread

    Before we can make a t-shirt or hat, the fabric needs to be manufactured from individual strands of yarn or thread, which are in turn spun from processed fiber. This is one of two major links missing in the domestc apparel supply chain.

  • Fabric & Dye

    The manufacture and dyeing of fabric is the other missing link. Very few dometic dyers or producers of fabric exist. So far, there are no North American suppliers of hemp fabric, but several are currently experimenting with cost-effective, scalabe ways to make fabric from hemp, in the U.S.A.

  • Cut & Stitch

    There are a handful of cut & stitch shops spread across the country that can turn fabric into finished goods, and fortunate for us, the is a good one here in Denver. However, due to high U.S. labor costs, the finished clothing will be much more expensive to produce than overseas.

  • Printing & Emroidery

    There are a number of local options for this step. We've decided to go with a family-run business in our home town of Parker, Colorado. But again, it will be much more expensive than if it were done overseas.

  • Finish & Packaging

    For this final link in our supply chain we will rely on local work experience businesses like Bayaud Enterprises, helping Denver area people with disabilities to create self-reliance. Our goal is always to benefit local people and our economy.
