About the Company
Freshemp™ Originals are proud to present the return of the classic Hemp Works/Hoodlamb jackets from Amsterdam. Durable, eco-friendly hemp jackets with the softest fake fur lining!
When co-founders Adam Dunn (New York) and Douglas Mignola (San Francisco) met in Amsterdam in 1993, they came up with a vision. Their idea? To make a jacket that looked great on the outside, and made you feel good on the inside! They were focused on creating a quality garment that would be useful for everyday wear, while also being environmentally friendly. Their driving force, their goal, is to make sustainable clothing using cutting-edge techniques and eco-friendly materials. They listen to customer's feedback and work closely with their factories to make their jackets as good as they can be. They turned an environmentally-friendly jacket into a must-have piece of clothing.
"Hemp Works" was the original company, later to become "Hoodlamb", and now the jackets are back under the name "Freshemp™".
The hemp is organically grown and sourced directly from farms where it is hand sowed and harvested, thereby creating some of the best hemp fiber in the world. After harvest, the raw fiber is spun into the fine, strong hemp thread that is used to weave their custom, sustainable fabrics.
All of their fabric dyes are fibre reactive. They hand-select each dye to achieve the best possible colour-fastness while using less than 50% the water required for conventional dyes.
Their environmentally friendly water-resistant coating is made from natural cellulose derived from the inner core of the hemp stalk. It shows outstanding performance in wet, windy or cold conditions.
Freshemp™ clothing and accessories are made from cruelty-free sources and are naturally free of harsh chemicals and toxins that can harm the skin. No animal products were used in the making of their collection.
Their shell and fleece fabrics contain organic approved yarns and OCS Certified cotton. All source materials were grown without insecticides, herbicides or fungicides, and for this reason their products are allergen free, breathable and very durable.
Thermore® EcoDown® - The only thermal insulation made from 100% recycled fibres, offers excellent warmth and comfort. Each Freshemp™ jacket insulated with Thermore EcoDown recycles up to 10 bottles and saves enough energy to keep a 10W light on for 100 hours.
