Hemp Denim, really?

Yes, really! While our first collection isn’t made entirely out of hemp, our goal is to create an environmentally friendly denim brand, made entirely out of agricultural hemp. Hemp Blue is supporting the movement to legalize industrial hemp farming in the US. Growing industrial hemp is already legal in almost every industrialized nation including Canada, Russia, China, most of Europe, Argentina and Chile. These countries are making millions of dollars of hemp textiles a year while saving the environment.

So what are the benefits of growing hemp?

When people hear about hemp, they immediately compare it to marijuana. But what many don’t know is that hemp as an agricultural crop is chemically and genetically different from “weed.” You actually can’t get high from hemp. Yet, the US government classifies this agricultural crop in the same category as heroin, as a schedule 1 drug. Such a shame, we know.

Allow us to tell you why hemp is the way for a sustainable future:

1) Hemp requires no pesticides, fungicides, or herbicides and adds nitrates back into the soil whereas 50{f1d755e3d686d84b3fba3fb9da3bc25d6eb08724c18385fd50146d58c836a6dd} of all chemicals used in American agriculture today are used in growing cotton.

2) Hemp uses one-third less water than cotton when being grown and half as much water when being processed.

3) One acre of hemp will produce as much paper as 2-4 acres of trees.

4) Hemp breathes in four times the carbon dioxide of trees.

Did we mention that hemp can make food, clothing, shelter, bio-plastic, car parts…and 20,000 other things? All sustainably.

Have we convinced you yet?

Our vision is to create a timeless and classic premium denim brand while paving the way for a more sustainable future. Hemp Blue represents a conscious lifestyle led by sustainable decisions. We are mindful of choice, and the necessity of responsible consumption.

Who’s the creative mind behind Hemp Blue?

With his passion for detail, and an eye for the latest trends in the fashion world, designer Alfredo Settimio has created the look for this contemporary denim apparel line. He has worked with the design teams for labels such as Armani Jeans, Seven For All Mankind and Wrangler Blue Bell. Every single garment symbolizes Hemp Blue’s fight for the legalization of industrial hemp farming in the USA, and the company’s desire to manufacture sustainable American made fashion.

Why is there still cotton in our denim?

Hemp is grown in many countries around the world, but not in the USA. These countries make hemp for everything from food and clothing to lotions and car parts. However, a lot of the hemp fabric being made today is of poor quality and with worse labor standards. We have chosen the best hemp fabric available in the world, from Japan and Italy. With the funds raised from this campaign, we will be able to buy more hemp fabric – which will secure our supply chain and bring down the price! Until then, we have sourced the best cotton in the United States.

I’m in. What sizes are available?

All pieces are true to size. We will be offering men’s jeans in 29, 30, 33, 34, 35, 36, 38 and women’s jeans in 23, 24, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31. Jackets and shirts will come in size small, medium and large.

How else can I help?

None of this would be possible without you. We are starting the movement towards a more sustainable future, but YOU are the movement. After you support us, we would love if you helped spread the word. Email, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter – whatever you prefer!
