Cone Denim® plans to launch a new US grown hemp denim collection at the Kingpins Amsterdam Show from April 20-21, 2022.
As per a Textile World report, to be launched in collaboration with expert hemp processing innovator, BastCore, Cone Denim’s US Hemp Collection includes a range of fabrics featuring classic 3×1 and comfort stretch to modern workwear constructions. The collection further expands upon Cone’s sustainability and traceability practices, driving the future of the industry. The proximity of the hemp, indigo, and cotton crops in the U.S. to the company’s mills in Mexico is also key in creating the smallest environmental impact and footprint possible.
Steve Maggard, President, Cone Denim says, BastCore’s innovation of American hemp opens great opportunities to create sustainable denims made from US sourced agriculture products located in close proximity to Cone’s manufacturing operations in Mexico.
