This garment was made by Hemp Fortex, who we have been working with since 2019. They were founded in 1999 and have their head office in Qingdao, Shandong Province, China and manufacturing at their Rushan Factory in Weihei, China.
They are a vertically integrated manufacturer and converter which allows them full transparency and stewardship over every part of the process. They work primarily with hemp which they grow themselves, as well as organic cotton, recycled polyester and Tencel.
Alongside their focus on providing good working conditions, they are also demonstrating a commitment to the environment by producing 70%~100% of their electricity onsite by solar. They only use EU approved dyes and chemicals in the dyeing and finishing and carefully monitor and control wastewater.
They are members of the Fair Wear Foundation and WRAP accredited and completed the Sustainable Apparel Coalition HIGG factory modules in 2016.
