About My Business:


I started vital hemp on Earth Day, 2003 after teaching literature and film history for ten years. I wanted to do something more responsive to the needs of the planet. The business began as a part-time endeavor, peddling hemp on weekends on the Venice boardwalk. That grew into designing my own line and selling at festivals. Then other stores wanted to carry the line. Eight years later, I'm designing in Venice and manufacturing in Los Angeles, California, making and distributing the most comfortable, stylish hemp clothing I can. While I focus on basics, I always build in quality and some element of personal design, through the colors I choose, contrast stitching or the construction of the garment. Recently, I've been using the scraps of production to make scarves and beanies. I'm also making farmer's market bags and yoga bags. I'm open to discussing custom orders and love collaborating to create something cool that people will love and use for years.
