About Hemp Clothing Australia
At Hemp Clothing Australia we create garments which reduce your footprint on the planet. We are an Australian owned and operated brand working with the best environmentally-oriented manufacturers and farmers in the world. Our focus is to create durable, ethical and sustainable hemp clothing that empowers slow-fashion objectives.
Every Hemp Clothing Australia garment helps the environment by preventing waste, pollution and landfill, while creating and maintaining clean-industry farming and jobs. Our hemp is sourced using sustainable hemp farming practices that avoid the use of herbicides and pesticides as well as reduce water consumption and pollution.
At Hemp Clothing Australia, we don’t operate by the unsustainable fast-fashion timetable of seasonal collections; we make timeless slow-fashion pieces which adapt to all seasons.
At Hemp Clothing Australia our mission and values are to:
- recognise and reduce the impact of the clothing industry (one of the world’s most polluting industries)
support the reduction of excessive consumerism
empower all people within our supply chain, paying at or above award wages
educate the wider population about sustainable fashion practices
drastically increase the quality and durability of clothing
engage government, industry and other labels to improve their standards

Hemp is kind to our Earth. Hemp farming improves the environment as it requires little water, no pesticides or herbicides, regenerates and aerates soil with each grow-cycle and absorbs more carbon dioxide than trees. Hemp is the only natural crop that can reverse the damage caused to the environment and simultaneously yield products that sustain our existence. Hemp offers us a realistic opportunity to create a sustainable clothing industry.
