IPath Hemp Jeans

Almost all jeans are made of cotton today, because, at the time the cotton gin was invented, nobody has the technology to process the tough fibers of hemp into a soft fabric. Hemp grew better than cotton in poorer soil conditions, and didn't require pesticides, but it was discarded in those early days.

Today we have the technology to process hemp into a very soft but tough material, making it the optimal fiber for jean production. There's no reason why all jeans shouldn't be made of hemp.

Hempest has a good selection of men's and women's hemp pants, including jeans. Pictured here is IPath's hemp jeans. They are available for around $50 from EastBay and Utility Board Supply. Via MetaEfficient
