12 Ways to Wear Sustainable Hemp Clothing

Hemp has turned its image around. Originally touted as “daggy hippy clothing”, in recent years it has skyrocketed in popularity as a sustainable plant-based fabric. In fact, organic hemp is one of the best materials on the market.

The fibre produced from pure hemp is similar to linen in texture. It can also be blended with other plant-based fibres to create fabrics with the durability of hemp and the softness of cotton or bamboo. And while hemp is a weed in more ways than one, requiring little water and no pesticides to grow well, it’s important to be aware that hemp does not always mean organic—many farmers still use environmentally damaging fertilizer. When going for hemp, make sure it’s organic to ensure it was produced with the lightest possible footprint.

Okay, so it has the potential to be an eco-friendly powerhouse of a material, but is there any sustainable hemp clothing out there made by brands that are on-trend? The answer is a resounding yes! Read on to discover our 11 favourite brands making sustainable hemp clothing you’ll actually want to wear. Some standouts are the hemp denim jeans from Afends (AU), Mila.Vert’s (Slovenia) gorgeous V-neck reversible top, and the hemp swimwear of your dreams from Natasha Tonic (US). Happy hemping!

Natasha Tonic’s hemp swimwear fabric is based around a unique, natural hemp fibre that is antimicrobial, UV resistant, durable, and a healthier choice for your skin and our oceans. Even better, each piece is slightly different since they’re printed by hand, allowing for each sustainable bikini to be tailored for the most gorgeous you!
