Of all the renewable materials around, hemp is definitely the strongest and most versatile. It’s tougher than cotton, and has natural antimicrobial properties. It’s also a fast growing plant, making it extremely sustainable. It can be used for paper, clothing, construction materials, biofuel, plastic composites, bath & body care and so many more, and it’s really unfortunate that it’s not quite reached industrial use yet. However, many companies are working on that by promoting its use, such as Hemp Blue, Nomads Hemp Wear, The Body Shop and several others. It’s always exciting to me to see so many startups working to change the world in terms of sustainability, and I’ve got another one to share with you today: Kahush.
Kahush is a new brand with a mission to create high quality, functional gear for outdoor adventures. They are currently working their way up via a Kickstarter campaign and with five models of hemp bags: the Hennep disc golf bag, Asa backpack, Dr. Hänf duffle bag, Hamp sleeve, and Dr. Hamppu dopp kit (or toiletry bag). Each one is equally functional as it is attractive, and are made to keep up with your most strenuous outdoor activities! They really thought this project through, keeping in mind the importance of waterproofing, TSA regulations, and all the right pockets to keep everything you need readily available. Kampu really has created a brand new breed of bags!
“Kahush’s mission is to create innovative high quality gear that reflects our love and devotion to the outdoors. By utilizing the most versatile natural fiber around, hemp, we strive to meet our customer’s functional needs while addressing environmental concerns.”
“Kahush gear features hemp for a variety of reasons. Stronger and more durable than cotton. Sustainable. Versatile. Ecofriendly. Antimicrobial. Whether parking discs on the course, surfing the web, or a having a much needed grooming session from a long day’s adventure, we have the gear for you.”
