TAILOR TALK: THE TECH 4-20 BY HOODLAMB

Many years ago Amsterdam based label Hoodlamb set out to make the first truly stylish sustainable winter jacket using hemp. Like with all journeys, the path quickly became the destination, and the label’s quest to create beautiful outerwear that is both good for the planet and great to wear continues to the present.

One of the rewards of this mission has been the Tech 4-20 – the first truly technical hemp jacket in the world. With its sustainable innovation and tailored appeal it has helped define what eco fashion looks like.

This year the ambitious Hoodlamb team set themselves the challenge to make the Tech 4-20 even stronger and durable. The solution seemed clear – more hemp! So voila, hemp component upped in the shell fabric to 77%; adding to the strength of the woven fabric, as well as the eco factor, since there is nothing more sustainable in the world than natural, hand-farmed hemp.
