to the Hemp Works blog! We're a store in Amsterdam dedicated to all things made of hemp.
We have an in-house clothing label Hemp HoodLamb which you might know from its signature Winter Jackets. We make stylish, urban wear that's not only beautiful but also eco friendly and high in comfort.
At HoodLamb we are proud to use only the highest quality hemp and other organic and recycled materials in our collection. We believe that by combining eco-friendly materials with innovative and timeless design, fashion and sustainability can be perfectly joined to protect the environment. Curious about our working process? Read more about our Eco Standards in this little booklet about HoodLambs' production.
With its water and wind proof exterior and soft cruelty free fur lining, the HDL Long Coat will keep you warm in style during the coldest Winter days!
Our range of Winter Outerwear is world-renowned for its quality and style. Striving for sustainability in fashion, our entire collection is made from eco-friendly fabrics like hemp and organic cotton. We even developed our own cruelty free fake fur from hemp and recycled plastic. Our latest progress in eco-technology, is our new eco-friendly waterproof coating. Made from eco-friendly hemp organic cellulose it is a great alternative to the chemical treatments most other jackets undergo.
With dark clouds gathering outside our windows and weather forecasts giving us nothing but drizzles and showers, we figured it's the perfect moment to give you a little scoop on our new Fall/Winter collection!
Check out the new HoodLamb Long P-Coat. A sophisticated urban coat with classic elements, clean lines and all the HoodLamb features you love; a water and wind-resistant outer shell, soft cruelty free fur lining, two secret pockets for your valuables and fake fur lined hand warmer pockets on the outside. This Winter's must-have for any style conscious man!
Other new items include a super soft Satifur Shawl Cardigan for ladies, cool printed hoodies, funky t-shirt prints and a new Ladies Sea Shepherd Jacket. After the great succes of the HDL x Sea Shepherd line last year we decided to add a new design to the HDL x Sea Shepherd Ladies range. The new design is a bit more refined than last's year's jacket and features artwork from dutch artist Majo.
Doug just got back from production and is very excited about the upcoming collection. The collection seamlessly integrates sustainability (all items are made from hemp, organic cotton and other earth-friendly fabrics) with extreme weather gear (sturdy, winterproof and high in comfort to wear). The latest step in HoodLamb's evolution is a brand new, eco-friendly hemp organic cellulose water and wind resistant treatment, making the 11-12 series the most protective and comfortable to date, while maintaining a natural high quality look and feel.
Besides the new items, the HoodLamb FW Collection of course also features the very popular HoodLamb Jacket range of Classic Winter Jackets, Ladies Long Coats and Men's Tech 4-20, Furry Hoodies and essential Winter Accessories like the Ruderalis Hats and Ear Muffs. Something to look forward to on these grey and rainy days!
The new collection will be available online end of September.
Signature feature of the HoodLamb Winter Collection is our Cruelty Free Hemp Fur aka Satifur. The lining our Winter Jackets, Furry Hoodies and HoodLamb Accessories are all made from this luscious fake fur. Once you've touched and felt the warmth of Satifur, you might find it hard to believe no rabbits were killed in order to create this super soft material. After years of trying to feed your curiosity with stories of little animals called Hempsters, we finally unleashed a part of our Satifur mystery in an interview for P+ magazine, a Belgium magazine dedicated to sustainable business practices.
For all of who you who were still in doubt: no, we really don't harm any animals for our fur. It's 100% faux fur, made from hemp, acrylic and recycled PET. At HoodLamb we strive for progress and sustainability and try to implement new developments in eco-technology every new season. This year we've changed the composition of our Satifur, replacing part of the acrylic with recycled PET.
