I am currently co-owner of The Hempest clothing stores, and have been so for 22 years and counting. We specialize in all things Hemp and maintain one of the most diverse and complete Hemp retail lines on the planet. We also focus on wholesale distribution, and manufacturing. I have traveled and sourced vendors throughout Asia, Europe, Australia, and the US. I have also sourced several certified fair trade factories in China where we produce our own line of goods. I have experience sourcing, and designing hemp and organic textiles, as well as extensive experience importing and exporting these goods. In 2003, I started Hempest.com, currently one of the top hemp and organic clothing sites on the web, with the top google ranking in hemp clothes, and hemp clothing. I work from a deep conviction that Hemp is the answer to a wide breadth of some of the world’s most pressing problems. The demonization of the Cannabis plant has caused extensive damage to our planet as well as our collective consciousness. It is a senseless war that will never be won, against a plant that history has shown to be one of the most useful, and beneficial plants we have ever known. I’ll continue to work hard to do my part to make sure Hemp has a future.
