There has long been a common misconception about hemp. No, it is not (just) something your older brother used to smoke out behind the garage, nor is it only good for making rope. As it turns out, hemp is a wonder weed. Its sustainable, durable nature makes it a great material for clothing. When made into clothes, hemp can be softer than traditional cotton and offer an elevated sense of comfort with high marks (pun intended) for breathability and fast drying capabilities. Aside from hemp’s awesome material qualities, it’s a sustainability all-star because growing hemp uses considerably less water than conventional cotton. All our hemp is grown to organic standards and processed using non-toxic methods. We regularly include hemp in our fabrics and are upping our usage season after season. Here’s why making hemp clothing can help save the world.
Hemp is Strong Like Bull
Hemp is three times stronger than traditional cotton and is one of the most durable natural textile fibers out there. Using hemp fibers ensures our clothing stays on your back year in and year out.

Hemp is Water Conscious
Did you know that conventional cotton requires a TON of water to grow and process into clothing? From irrigation to cleaning to dying, conventional cotton sucks up water during every step. But superstar hemp relies primarily on rainwater for irrigation, giving us yet another reason to love it.
Hemp Is Technologically Savvy
You’re an adventurous person, so there no telling what you might get into in your Toad&Co clothing. Whether you’re breaking a sweat (or the person next to you is…), it’s always nice to have clothing that works with you. Hemp is a natural bacterial inhibitor that helps decrease odor (score!) and wicks moisture away. It’s also a dense fiber so it provides UV resistance – no matter how lightweight your hemp blend shirt is. That’s a whole lot of tech in a natural package!
