Viscose Hemp Clothing
Viscose Hemp clothing has quite the history in the US and even more misconceived perceptions about the plant itself. For the first 162 years of America’s existence, viscose hemp clothing was widely used. Thomas Jefferson and George Washington both grew up growing viscose hemp, the first U.S Flag made by Betsy Ross was made of viscose hemp, uniforms were made of viscose hemp during World War 2, it was known as the classic American crop- up until it was banned to grow in the US after WW2.
Just to clear the smoke, viscose hemp clothing does not contain THC which is the drug responsible for marijuana’s side effects. Viscose Hemp and marijuana do grow from the same Cannabis Sativa plant and look similar, but they are not the same.
Viscose Hemp clothing is incredibly strong and durable. Viscose Hemp clothing is great at holding its shape and will even get softer as it ages. As the saying goes; “hemp doesn’t wear out, it wears in.”
Our unisex viscose hemp organic cotton tee is a tri-blend of jersey knit, viscose hemp and organic cotton. This sustainable and environmentally friendly shirt has a silky soft feel and great drape.
Viscose Hemp clothing is much more water-absorbent than cotton which prevents for the color of viscose hemp clothing from fading. And because we’ve become so water conscious for good reason lately, it’s great to know that this precious plant uses 1/20th the amount of water than cotton does to grow and process.
Another great reason to bring back viscose hemp clothing is because the roots of the plant grows deep into the earth to preserve the topsoil and subsoil from erosion and keeps the soil healthy for years to come without the need to rotate the crops like cotton needs to.
So come check out our viscose hemp clothing and help bring back “America’s crop” one shirt at a time!
