We make sustainable athletic apparel from hemp


On the crossroads between sustainability and performance, we are aiming to create sports apparel that offers high quality for the wearer and low impact on the environment. Currently, we are starting with our first product: 100% hemp shirts.

Hemp is the legal, non-smokable version of cannabis, and offers lots of benefits to the environment and the wearer.
