OUR STORY

THTC is as durable as the streetwear products we make.

In 1999, driven by a vision for T-shirts that walk the talk, brothers Drew and Gav Lawson created The Hemp Trading Company (aka, THTC). We make socially conscious clothing with the lowest possible environmental impact. We're now one of Europe's longest-running ethical streetwear fashion labels.

From sourcing materials to factory conditions, and from artistry to inks, we've been on a mission to make fashion more sustainable and keep our message on point. Our products are made from at least 55% organic hemp combined with carbon-neutral organic cotton, recycled PET and other upcycled fabrics.

HEMP IS BACK...AND IT’S THRIVING

Fast fashion has made the challenge for smaller, sustainably-led brands to compete with mass produced clothing labels much more important. People of diverse backgrounds are finally taking note of the environmental and social impact of the things they wear, own, use, consume and even discard.

But we also believe that creativity in fashion doesn’t need to be stigmatised. It’s possible to enjoy changing fashions and still make clothing sustainably.

Innovation in agritech, and a greater scrutiny of materials has led to revisiting previously unfashionable or unimaginable sources. Cannabis has been hailed as one of the world’s oldest, useful, most sustainable, and overlooked crops. For two decades at THTC we've known that the cannabis plant has more than 25,000 uses across food, biofuel, medicine, beauty, construction materials, fashion and textiles.

HEMP IN NUMBERS

Hemp is one of the world’s fastest growing fabrics and can be grown easily without the use of pesticides. A hemp crop produces double the yield than a cotton crop.

Producing a cotton t-shirt requires around 2500 litres of water. Hemp can be grown with between 10% and 20% the water that cotton needs.
8-15
Hemp is one of the best CO2-to-biomass converters, absorbing between 8 to 15 tonnes of CO2 per hectare of cultivation.
25,000
The hemp plant produces around 25,000 clean, sustainable bi-products, from biofuel to cellulose plastics, paper, textiles, food and building blocks.
