Please note that these canvas jeans behave the same as regular denim. Please order your usual jeans size. They should be a firm fit to begin with and will relax within the first 30 minutes of wearing. They will then shrink back to original size with a wash. They will not however, shrink any further, in length or width, than their original size.
Hemp has played a vital role in human history, supplying the world’s strongest natural fibre, used for rope, clothing, sail cloth, paper and many other uses. The first jeans were constructed of recycled hemp sailcloth for the California '49ers. Many famous artists such as Van Gogh also painted some of their greatest works on hemp canvas.
Growing hemp is far better for the planet than growing cotton. The same land will produce 2-3 times as much hemp fibre per year as it will cotton. Hemp is easy to grow organically, requiring little or no help from pesticides or herbicides. Its roots dig deep and Hemp therefore requires little or no irrigation and stabilises the ground. It grows in a wide range of climates and leaves the soil enriched for the next crop.
Hemp has eight times the tensile strength and four times the durability of cotton due to its fibre length. It is also softer and more absorbent than cotton, and is very effective at blocking the sun’s UV rays.
Hemp that is industrially grown for its fibre should not be confused with Cannabis grown for medicinal or recreational use. Although part of the same family, it has little to no narcotic substance making it worthless as a drug.
Please follow those attached to the garment. Machine, or hand wash in cold or warm water. Do not bleach. Line dry out of the direct sun or tumble dry on medium heat.
Similar to linen trousers, hang up straight from the line for a relaxed look, or hot iron if necessary.
