HEMP FIBERS

Hemp is actually the “sober cousin” of marijuana. It has a minimal amount of psychoactive components, and for that reason it is legal everywhere in the world. Our team has traveled across Europe, China and the US with our shoes, and all you get is a bunch of excited security officers wanting to take a picture of them.

1. Harvesting hemp plants

Most plants used for hemp fabric are harvested with a specially developed machine. 

2. Retting

The fibers are separated from the bark and are then allowed to rett in the field for 4-6 weeks.

3. Carding into strands

The separated bast fibers are then carded into strands, and are cleaned to remove impurities.

4. Pulping, matting or steam

Manufacturers may use pulping to produce paper products, matting to make fleeces, or steam explosion to render raw hemp into a weavable fiber.

5. Weaving into textile

Hemp is ready to be spun into yarn and woven into textile.

 

At 8000Kicks, we spent months traveling the globe looking for the right growers of Hemp to guarantee a premium fabric that was not only strong, flexible, and durable, but also splash proof and dust proof.
