Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) June 21, 2006
Fair Hemp (http://www.FAIRHEMP.COM), the Sustainable and Sweatshop-Free clothing manufacturer that has used organic cotton exclusively since their first t-shirt, was excited to hear that Levi's is considering introducing denim made from organic cotton. Fair Hemp's line of t-shirts are a great compliment to any new pair of organic jeans. Constructed from 55% organically grown hemp and 45% certified organic cotton, the tees are pre-washed to prevent shrinkage and for a comfortable wear. The t-shirt styles and fits are distinctly modern with details such as lycra in the neck, tagless collar and a comfortable cut. Moreover, the tees are dyed with eco-friendly reactive dyes and finished with a natural enzyme (non-gmo of course) for optimum comfort. Ideal for embroidery, screen printing, or as a basic paired with your favorite organic jeans, the latest line of tees are available in eco-white, black, navy blue, red, coffee, olive, pale pink and eggplant.
Hemp clothing offers a comfortable, far more durable and sustainable alternative to the traditional cotton t-shirt. Just switching to 5 men's hemp/organic cotton t-shirts saves approximately 1 pound of agricultural chemicals and over 600 gallons of fresh water compared to what goes into a 100% cotton t-shirt. Additional benefits of Hemp include increased ultraviolet protection and anti-bacterial properties (hemp's fiber structure makes it difficult for bacteria to grow on it).
Ideal for the denim fan who does not desire to sacrifice style in favor of responsible consumerism, the Fair Hemp t-shirts are available starting at $12.95 and can be found at select retailers in the US (on Ebay too). Wholesale is available to retailers, embroiderers and screenprinters. Most Fair Hemp products are currently manufactured in China (due to laws prohibiting domestic hemp) under fair trade manufacturing principles.

About Fair Hemp: Fair Hemp began as the brainchild of Alicia DeVito and her brother Alex. Since starting in 2003, the company has remained committed to sustainable fabrics and the ideal that eco-friendly fashion design should appeal to a broad audience, rather than a specific niche. Fair Hemp offers basics for both men and women, baseball caps in both adult and children's sizes and athletic wristbands among other private label options. All of Fair Hemp's products are perfect for customization, either through a local embroidery or screen printing shop, or through one of their partners in the U.S.
