Companies Doing Cool Things With Hemp
It’s no surprise to anyone who shops with us that Dime Bag is extremely proud to be a supporter of the hemp fabric industry. We use our own proprietary blend of hemp and recycled polyester to make all of our products, and we’re excited to promote other companies out there who do their part by switching to hemp fabric. Hemp has some incredible advantages, including being environmentally friendly, anti-microbial, and stronger than many other plant fibers on the market. Combine all those great traits with the fact that being abused by the weather just makes it softer, more durable, and even more ready to take on the next adventure and there’s no surprise we use hemp! So come with us while we examine a few other companies that are fighting the good fight by using hemp for their products.

These guys are one of our personal favorites, in part because it’s hard to go wrong with hemp candles and body care products.

WAMA has been producing an incredible line of comfortable, durable hemp underwear that is far more comfortable than you might guess. Remember what we said about hemp being anti-microbial?
