Just in time for cooling temperatures, Hemp Hoodlamb offers a collection of men’s and women’s eco chic winter clothing and accessories. The collection includes coats, knitwear, hats, and ear muffs which are all made from bamboo and hemp fiber, including the (faux) fur! The Amsterdam-based clothing company is a strong believer in the wonders of hemp, a rapidly renewable plant that can be made into extremely strong fiber. Which means that hemp is an ideal alternative for making eco friendly gear for harsh winters.

Since 1993, the company has sold stylish hemp urban wear out of their store, HempWorks. Hemp Hoodlamb is the company’s in-house brand, started in 1995 to create a line of sustainable as well as comfortable and durable winter clothing. To make this winter collection unbelievably soft and cozy, Hemp Hoodlamb integrates two other alternative materials: bamboo and soy fibers. The result is a line of coats decked out with practical functionality such as hoods lined with hemp for warmth and an exterior that wicks away water. Plus many of the jackets feature secret pockets to stash a mp3 player and earphones.

With a classic urban look, Hemp Hoodlamb has created a collection that is both fashionable and functional, making it a perfect environmentally friendly and cruelty-free alternative for winter.

    how water resistant is it? is it waterproof, or just splash proof? and is it warm? like for walking out in snowy weather?

    I have a hoodlamb coat and it is the most comfy/awesome coat I have ever owned! The coat I have (I can’t say if it’s true for all the coats) has a bunch of pockets inside, including a rolling paper dispenser. Which is neat, even though I don’t use them.
