Where others see a problem,
we see an opportunity

Current industry processes demonstrate a linear economy which boasts, “Take, Make, and Waste.” This problematic system has led to a new way of thinking which challenges today's standards. We are pairing our technological advancements with the sustainable DNA of hemp to forge a new “cleaner and greener” circular textile industry.

Hemp’s inherently eco-friendly attributes means that no chemical pesticides or herbicides are needed in its growing process, thereby creating no water pollution. Using ⅓ the amount of water required by cotton, hemp requires little irrigation, with most water coming from rainfall, resulting in increased water efficiency. 

By employing student workers, Hemp Black offers compensation in stipends and tuition remission, offers jobs after graduation, and gives students professional work experience. Furthermore, by providing jobs in Kentucky and by domesticating most of our operations, Hemp Black is able to contribute to America’s local economy. 

Working towards a “cleaner and greener”global textile and fashion industry, Hemp Black pairs technological advancements and research with the sustainable DNA of hemp to create innovative change in the hemp industry.   

With the help of the fast growing and renewable hemp crop and a carbon negative production process, Hemp Black can deliver sustainable production and consumption processes that support the advancement of sustainable management and promote the efficient use of natural resources. 

Through sustainable solutions and ideas, Hemp Black ensures that we leave a minimal carbon footprint while helping to combat climate change. With the sequestration of over 1.5 tons of CO2 per ton of hemp harvested to the domestic localization of operations, Hemp Black aims to improve the world through carbon negativity.

We reduce our environmental impact from waterway pollution and microfiber shedding through our commitment to bettering our process and materials while utilizing hemps natural sustainability attributes.

Through our use of a rapidly renewable, high yielding crop, the use of hemp allows for more material to be produced with less of an impact. Of the land that hemp does use, it helps to restore the biodiversity of the soil by returning up to 70% of the nutrients back into the ground.

To further the advancement of our goals and to promote the importance of sustainable business practices, Hemp Black creates meaningful and impactful relationships. This is achieved across multiple industries and in our own supply chain with partners who share a similar vision in creating a sustainable future for all.
