Hemp material dates back as far as 8,000 B.C.E. America was founded on it – both Presidents Washington and Jefferson grew it, Thomas Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence on it, Betsy Ross sewed the first American Flag with it, and the pioneers covered their wagons with it. Jungmaven founder, Robert Jungmann has been working with hemp and natural dyes since 1993 and pushing for more US industrial farming of this strong and environmentally sustainable fiber. His company crafts perfectly slouchy, flattering, almost broken-in tee's made with a blend of 55% hemp and 45% organic cotton.
