Going green is important but so is comfort. There’s no item of clothing we can think of that needs to be as comfortable as your undergarments.
Countless attempts to go eco-friendly “down there” have failed.
That is until WAMA underwear came along.
They’ve truly mastered the art of turning hemp into underpants and we have to say, we love what they’re doing.
Why Hemp Underwear?
For a short period of time it looked like hemp would become the dominant material crop in North America. Then the powerful and wealthy lobby representing cotton producers got involved and because hemp is closely related to marijuana – the industry was swiftly sidelined by legislation.
However, you can’t keep a good crop down and in the 2000s people have started to realize just how useful hemp can be for making things.
You can make paper from hemp, fibers from hemp and just about anything you can think of can be made from the fibers – including underwear.
The Benefits Of Hemp Underwear
This wouldn’t have matter if it weren’t for the fact that hemp fabrics can be made super soft and are naturally anti-bacterial and anti-microbial and as importantly, for underwear, they’re also very breathable.
WAMA underwear decided to become the pioneer of this nascent industry and create exception underwear with the right fit, function and design.
The WAMA mission is “to pioneer the hemp underwear industry by making the best hemp undies in the world and constantly improving the fit, function and design.”
As hemp is naturally anti-bacteria and anti-microbial, as well as breathable and very soft, it’s a natural textile to be used for underwear.
We can report that they’ve succeeded. This is a business that understands underwear as much as it understands eco-friendliness.
Everyone should buy their underwear from WAMA.
