Not strictly for surfers, board shorts provide style and comfort for warmer days. Hempy’s Classic Board Shorts are a mix of 55% hemp and 45% cotton muslin, which makes them soft yet long-lasting. Choose from olive with gray contrast stitching or chocolate brown with the tattoo trim and contrast stitching to match. Both are 20-3/4″ long with a velcro fly, drawstring closure, and a roomy pocket on the side that has a grommet plus a double velcro closure. Note that sizing is a bit limited. Made in the USA.
When this country was founded, hemp was an important crop due to its versatility. Requiring less water and maintenance than cotton, it naturally repelled insects and required no pesticides. Because the plants grew so densely, it choked out weeds, negating the need for herbicides as well. It also helped enrich depleted soil, making it a great crop to rotate each season. Hemp oil was used for lighting, and hemp fibers were essential for rope, clothing, and even paper. When Betsy Ross presented her American flag to the founding fathers, it was constructed from durable hemp fibers. Now Hempy’s is offering a decorative version that’s 100% hemp, just like the original. While the silk-screening process might not be quite as authentic, the process utilizes environmentally friendly water-based inks. Naturally, this 27.5″ x 14.5″ flag is American made.
We’re proud to share Hempy’s with our readers. Although the hemp has to be imported (due to ignorant US laws), they make everything stateside. So your purchase makes a contribution to the local economy, and keeps American workers employed. Just as important, consider some of the benefits of this natural fiber. All the hemp textiles, even hemp/cotton blends, are more durable than cotton alone, lasting longer and having less environmental impact all around. Skin care products made from hemp oils have nowhere near the environmental impact of fossil fuels, and are actually much better for us than those that are petroleum-based. Everyone wins with hemp.
