Jungmaven founder Robert Jungmann has been working with hemp textiles and natural dyes since '93. Tie dyeing and batiking with indigo, black tea, coffee, turmeric and making paper with the hemp scraps.
His vision is to get everyone in a hemp t-Shirt by 2020 to help mitigate climate change. The more farming of industrial hemp the better for the environment. Hemp cleans oxygen, water and nourishes the land. Hemp uses very little to no pesticides or insecticides and needs a fraction of the water that cotton takes to grow.
In our humble opinion, this is the perfect sweatshirt. Why? The 9.6 oz hemp/organic cotton blend is the ideal weight and ideal softness. Not too heavy, not too light, not too soft, not too stiff. Also the shawl collar inspired by classic sweaters adds a design detail that makes it ideal for Sunday brunch w/ jeans and the post-prandial nap at home afterwards.
