What's the go with hemp?

Why are we using hemp for our first chef jacket? (Airlie chef jacket)

Hemp has been the subject of much debate over the past 70 years - there’s a lot of misinformation out there about hemp, and a lot of people confused about hemps relationship with its close cousin marijuana. The only thing you’ll get from smoking hemp flowers is maybe a headache. Anyway, we’re not here to talk about smoking hemp, we’re here to talk about wearing it!

 Hemp is an absolute wonder fabric - both for the planet and for those wearing garments made from hemp. In the future I think that many more brands will jump on board the hemp train after discovering what an amazing fabric it is. Let me share with you the benefits of using hemp both for you personally and for the planet..
