'Hoodlamb' is an Amsterdam-based company that specializes in making hemp outerwear. Although materials such as wool, goose down and fur are popular choices for outerwear, there are many consumers who feel uncomfortable wearing products made from animals. Hoodlamb offers an alternative for those who are looking for vegan-friendly and cruelty-free garments.
Hoodlamb produces eco-friendly outerwear made from hemp that has been ethically sourced from farmers in Northern China. The company uses hemp because it is the earth's strongest and most durable natural fiber. The company also uses a natural cellulose material derived from the hemp plant to give each of its garments a natural water-resistant coating. As a result, Hoodlamb's hemp outerwear is able to stand up to wet, windy or cold conditions.
Not only is hemp a durable textile, but it is also an eco-friendly choice because it is resource-efficient and requires no herbicides, pesticides or fertilizer to grow.
