Hemp clothing has come a long way in recent years. Gone are the crunchy hippy vibes, which has been replaced with a modern aesthetic — in terms of both design and technology. The collaboration between Levi’s Wellthread x Outerknown — founded by surf legend Kelly Slater — uses cottonized hemp, which pairs the durability of hemp with the wearability of cotton. This white denim take on Levi’s classic Trucker jacket embraces Slater’s second home, the ocean, with the wave embroidered on the back.
Another world-first product on the list, 8000Kicks famously started life after founder Bernardo heard a joke about creating a “smokable shoe”. Made from a premium hemp fabric, these high-quality, vegan-friendly sneakers are strong, flexible, lightweight, and splash-proof. Plus, being a brand that’s geared around sustainability, 8000Kicks has partnered with Bloom Foam to create a super light algae bottom with increased durability, all while sponsoring the removal of harmful algae. Do good by your feet and the planet.
