Making athletic apparel sustainable with the use of hemp!


Imagine wearing a t-shirt that is made completely out of cannabis. Sounds crazy right? Well not if it is up to us.

At Iron Roots, we create athletic apparel made from industrial hemp, the non-smokeable, legal version of cannabis. Industrial hemp has a lot of environmental benefits compared to for example cotton or polyester, so it should be, in our opinion, more widely used in the clothing industry.

As you might know, the clothing industry is the second largest industrial polluter, second only to oil. This is due to the lack of use of sustainable materials and lack of transparency within the industry. We exist to tackle these problems and to inspire the use of industrial hemp.
