The Minawear Luxury Hemp Loungewear knit material is made from 55% hemp  45% organic cotton, and specifically designed for Minawear Hemp pants. Minawear has been developing styles for yoga, lounging, healing and feeling great, since 1998, and has proven the test of time. Quality and comfort are key, and hemp’s unique qualities of wicking, anti-microbial, temperature control, and memory to hold shape, make Minawear ideal for sports, leisure and hospital use. Mina’s philosophy of keeping life simple,shines through the clothing.

Minawear was founded in 1998 by Mina Hegaard and her hemp activist brother Kenyon Gibson in Venice Beach California. Together they built the company to promote health, education, and the care of the planet. In 2007, the company was acquired by GeoMio, another Los Angeles based eco-fashion manufacturer.Today Minawear is back in the hands of its namesake, and operating from Victoria Texas. In this stage of the Minawear re-launch, Mina is doing the productions in China, where the hemp is

Redwood Hemp is a newly formed enterprise that focuses on grassroots  hemp organizing and networking on behalf of hemp projects and hemp activism. Redwood Hemp provides hemp outreach and organizing tools, consulting services and resources to help make peoples’ hemp dreams come true. I work with leaders in the hemp movement and help to coordinate Hemp History Week the largest education campaign held nationwide, to legalize hemp farming again in the U.S.A. This work includes outreach to provide farming groups with hemp agronomy information and tools to become more active in the movement.

Mark your calendars for the 5th Annual

Hemp History Week -

June 2-8, 2014 It’s Time to Grow

Every day, more and more Americans discover the benefits of hemp. This ever-expanding market includes healthy food and body care products, as well as eco-friendly textiles, clothing, auto parts, and building materials. But despite hemp’s growing popularity, an outdated and misguided Federal policy – created in the 1930s – currently prevents U.S. farmers from growing this nutritious, versatile, and eco-friendly crop.

It is time for Federal policy on industrial hemp to reflect today’s reality and ensure a better tomorrow for America’s families and farmers, the economy and our planet. It’s Time to Grow!

The 4th Annual Hemp History Week was a huge success with over 880 events held nation-wide! Check out Event Pictures Here.  Like HHW on Facebook to stay involved. Lean more about the HHW sponsors! Get Involved!
