The Benefits of Hemp Clothing
Heal The Planet
DRIHP’s mission is to educate the world on what hemp can do. It just also happens to be the perfect blend for a luxury shirt.
Hemp is an incredibly environmentally friendly plant. Hemp not only rejuvenates the soil, it also doesn't require pesticides while using 1/20th the amount of water compared to cotton.
It also saves the trees by providing an alternative to any wood based product. Trees take up to 80 years to grow big enough to be manufactured. Hemp only takes about 90 days.
We hope to be a part of the movement that brings hemp clothing to the forefront of the fashion industry and create a positive change in the textile industry. Choosing hemp clothing is a small and simple act, but it can change the world. Hemp's ability to mitigate climate change is one of the most exciting opportunities of our generation.
A Miracle Plant
We believe that the planet deserves a lot of care and love. Here's a list of reasons why hemp clothing is becoming so popular.
• Environmentally friendly
The production of hemp requires very little water, which is less than half of what is required for cotton production. Hemp does not require the use of fertilizers and chemical pesticides and generates very little waste.
Hemp seeds produce oil and the stalks are used to produce textile fibers. Hemp provides more fibers per hectare than trees and can be replaced two to three times a year. Moreover, industrial hemp plants absorb more CO2 than trees.
Due to its low growth requirements, hemp is cheaper to cultivate. In four months, hemp plants can produce 5-10 tons of pulp fibers per hectare. Hemp can be mixed with other fibers to achieve a variety of qualities in one garment.
Hemp can be mixed with other fibers to achieve a variety of qualities in one garment. For added comfort, hemp silk and hemp cotton are available now.
Clothing made of hemp fibers is mold and UV resistant and therefore ideally suited as outdoor clothing.
Hemp fiber clothing is light and absorbent, with three times the tensile strength of cotton. People have found hemp to be very resistant and robust plant. The first hemp fibers were spun over 10,000 years back.
Where Style Meets Nature
The Farm Bill passed in 2018 making hemp legal in the US. Hemp is a wonder plant, it can clothe you, house you, heal you, and feed you. So we set out to create a luxury hemp apparel line; showing the world how hemp can help save the planet.
DRIHP's luxury hemp clothing saves the trees, air, and water, and looks good while doing it. Our luxury hemp blend has been used for long and short sleeves,, tanks, bomber jackets, and more.

SPREADING THE MESSAGE
There is still much to do. Apart from the ongoing legislative battle to remove legal barriers preventing hemp farms from thriving, farmers are still developing systems and perfecting processing elements like harvesting, cleaning, spinning, knitting, cutting, sewing, and dying.
We hope one day to use hemp grown directly here in the United States, but for the moment, we source our hemp responsibly from India and Turkey. We have a solid 25-year relationship with respected growers in those regions who pay fair wages and work under ethical working conditions. In addition, we are developing a resource guide to help American hemp growers connect to factories.
CONTROVERSY OVER HEMP PRODUCTION AND PROCESSING
A misinformation campaign initiated at the beginning of the 20th century is in stark contrast to scientific knowledge. As already said, the fiber-grown hemp plant has no significant value as a recreational drug. George Washington even cultivated hemp to make ropes and other materials.
Today, hemp is grown in Ukraine, Australia, China, Europe, Russia, and North America, among others. Due to this differentiation and the opportunities offered by hemp cultivation, many countries have started to legalize industrial hemp.
According to the Hemp Industries Association, the total retail value of hemp products sold in the United States was $573 million in 2015. Much of the raw material used to produce these products were imported, but that is changing rapidly as the United States moves toward federal regulation.
The value of this versatile, easy-to-grow and environmentally friendly crop is becoming increasingly evident. Hemp farmers in many areas regularly earn more than ten times as much money per hectare as cereal farmers. This is a promising option for farmers whose current crops have lower demand.

People worldwide are becoming more and more aware of the environment, so it's time to take the first step. DRIHP's luxury hemp clothing now makes it possible to show the world how fashion and nature can coincide if we can all make the right decisions.
