MY FAMILY LOVES HEMP CLOTHING BRANDS, INCLUDING UNDERWEAR AND CLOTHING
Hemp textiles have become more prevalent in the past decade as environmental benefits were rediscovered. Hemp fabric is highly durable, breathable, and has a unique natural style. It’s ideal for clothing, footwear, and homewares. Hemp fabric has been around for over 8,000 years. It made clothing, paper, rope, and many other products.
Hemp requires less water and pesticides than cotton. The hemp plant is less space-consuming, produces faster, and improves soil health. Hemp fibers have many benefits, including being strong, moisture-wicking, antibacterial, and UV resistant. This means that you can wash your hemp clothes less often, saving water and energy.
Even though hemp is an environmentally friendly material, there’s still a risk that some farms may not be organic or the working conditions at garment factories may not be fair. As hemp has a strong association as a “hippie thing,” it is easy to assume that anything hemp will be good for people and the planet. These assumptions are used by some brands to promote their products as environmentally and human-friendly. You should always double-check with the brands before you buy. Some of the products in this roundup are not made from 100% hemp.
This page is an excellent resource for anyone looking to buy hemp textiles, including underwear, clothing, and homewares. It includes brands that my family and myself love.
WAMA underwear is on a mission “to pioneer the hemp underwear market by making the most comfortable hemp undies available in the entire world.”
The fabric was so soft that I immediately fell in love. WAMA has created underwear that is both smooth and strong. As I said, hemp is durable. As a mother of two young children, I am constantly on the move. I need something comfortable that can keep up with me. The racerback bralette I have is comfortable and suitable for breastfeeding.
Fabric is 53% hemp, 44% organic GOTS-certified cotton and 3% spandex. All dyes are certified by Oeko-Tex. Their website has a code of conduct for suppliers and details about the supply chain. Their underwear is made from hemp grown on small family farms in China. China is the country that has been using hemp the longest and where the majority of hemp textiles in the world are produced today.

Refrain from telling the builder he will get some as a birthday gift.
Clothing and Shoes
Hemp Clothing Australia is a well-respected hemp clothing brand that commits to sustainability, durability, and ethical production. I was searching Op Shops for a plain white crewneck T-shirt that didn’t have any slogans or logos. I then decided to look at eco brands, and I always came back to the Woman’s Classic Shirt. It is comfortable, durable, and matches everything in my closet.
There are clothes for women, men, children, and many more. Hemp Clothing Australia also makes school uniforms, which I find particularly interesting. This is a game-changer.
Bohempia’s low-top shoes have been in my possession for over two years and are still in excellent condition. Bohohempia shoes are made from natural and sustainable materials such as hemp, cork and recycled rubber. They are comfortable, stylish, and long-lasting, and I can confirm that.
Bohemia uses sustainable materials and adheres to fair and ethical production practices. The company uses skilled artisans from the Czech Republic and Portugal for shoe production. They pay fair wages to their employees and provide safe working conditions. I bought mine at a local Melbourne store.

Margaret River Hemp
My first hemp garment was a pair of Margaret River Hemp pants for women I bought at an Op Shop six years ago in Wangaratta. I still wear them today. Since then, I have found more items in Op Shops. My husband wears Margaret River Hemp pants and a t-shirt as pajamas.
Margaret River Hemp Co is a company that produces high-quality hemp products locally. These include clothing, hemp seed oil, and hemp protein powder. They also have hemp flour and other hemp-based food. The company is also well-known for its hemp-based beauty and skincare products, including its pet care products. The company is committed to sustainability and environmental responsibility. They use only organic, non-GMO hemp, and they pay fair wages and work conditions.
Bedding and Homeware
WonderfulUkraine Hemp Bed Linen
As a gift for my 35th birthday, I bought our 100% Hemp duvet cover at WonderfulUkraine. The one in the picture at the top is the one I purchased. It’s remarkable in summer, but warm in winter. I love to cuddle under it all year round.
Many small businesses use hemp in a wide range of products on Etsy.
Hemp Gallery Bed Linen
As I began to reduce the amount of plastic in my daily life, I replaced my polyester sheets with Hemp Gallery sheets and pillowcases. Eight years on, the sheets and pillowcases are still in good condition. There are no stains or tears. The sheets are soft and lovely to sleep on. They clean up quickly, and I love their look.
The polyester linen is still in my garage and closets.
It is exciting to see more hemp brands on this list.
