Hemp Blue for Sustainable Denim
I just can’t say it enough, I am SO excited to see all the efforts made by the denim/general apparel industries lately for sustainability! Some might say it’s a little too late, but it’s better late than never…and hopefully the good old USA will finally see the light when it comes to hemp as a very, very sustainable fabric. Many of the artists I highlighted in my post about alternative designers for festival style awhile back already use organic or sustainable fabrics, but it’s just not quite widespread enough, as it should be. There are so many designers I love in the apparel industry, but the older I get, the more I tend to gravitate towards supporting these independent designers if that’s what it takes! So, it touches my heart when I see brands come out via Kickstarter or whatever vehicle is necessary to get the cause out and get more designers and manufacturers on board. It just makes sense. So without much more ado, here’s a press release from Hemp Blue, a denim brand working hard towards the cause of the use of hemp for sustainable fashion. They are currently running through a Kickstarter campaign, and have pretty decent support. But lets go full on and show them even more love for a purpose that is totally worth it! The brand will present styles for both men and women, in a variety of denim pieces from jeans (including selvedge!) to shirts to jackets. So hurry on down before the funding period ends and help these guys out.
HEMP BLUE TO REVOLUTIONIZE THE FASHION INDUSTRY
Making hemp clothing for a sustainable future
We are Hemp Blue, the new American premium hemp denim brand based in Los Angeles, and we make environmentally conscious clothing for a cause: the legalization of industrial hemp farming in the USA!
Hemp Blue is helping to bring back agricultural hemp as an environmentally conscious and sustainable resource in the United States. We are using hemp to create the next level of premium, classic, denim apparel that’s actually good for the earth.
Hemp has been feeding, clothing, sheltering and healing people for over 10.000 years. It is one of the most versatile and sustainable crops man has ever grown. It grows without herbicides, fungicides, fertilizers and pesticide, and uses very little water to grow and process. Furthermore, hemp can remove pesticides, toxins, heavy metals and crude oil from the soil. It can heal the earth while simultaneously offering over 20,000 commercial and industrial applications.

WHY HEMP DENIM?
Hemp fabric is softer, stronger and more durable than cotton. It is naturally mold, fungus, and UV resistant. Washing hemp makes it softer without undermining the fabric’s strength.
