Behind the scenes
In the early nineties, HoodLamb began as a simple wish: to feel warm, comfortable and protected after an exhilarating day surfing the cold waves of the North Sea. Everything started with the idea of creating a warm, durable jacket that looked great and was designed from natural fabrics.
It took some time, experimentation and innovation to get it right for Hoodlamb: ‘Finally we found hemp, the earth’s strongest natural fiber, and we have been using it in all of our apparel since. Twenty years later we have pioneered the hemp apparel industry, paying attention to balance of great looking style and function. Our clothes, from durable outerwear to soft knits, are made from hemp and high quality organic and recycled materials. They are designed to look great, last long, and exist in harmony with nature’.
Hoodlamb jackets are produced under fair working conditions in factories that were chosen for their expertise and progressive working environment. All of the jackets undergo the signature Hempulose treatment – an environmentally friendly water resistant coating (made from natural cellulose derived from the inner core of the hemp stalk). It shows outstanding performance in wet, windy or cold conditions.
