As stigma begins to shed on hemp—a strain of the Cannabis sativa plant species that’s not intended for drug use—and legislation on its use changes throughout the U.S., its popularity continues to increase in fashion and other lifestyle products.
For the denim world, this translates to a fiber alternative that can take the place of—or reduce the amount of—water-intensive cotton.
In honor of National Hemp Day on Feb. 4, Rivet took a look at some of the best fashion and home items made with the natural fiber.
Levi’s WellThread X Outerknown Lined Sherpa Trucker Jacket
Levi’s Wellthread x Outerknown incorporated cottonized hemp into its 2019 collections, which featured everything from jeans to T-shirts. This Sherpa trucker jacket was one of the standout pieces for its versatility and flair. The removable cozy lining makes it a jacket that can stay in your closet all year long.
Eileen Fisher Slouchy Pant
Cropped pants pair well with virtually any outfit, and this style from Eileen Fisher gives a denim look with a sweatpants feel. Wear with an oversize blazer and slides for a work-ready look.
Eileen Fisher Jumpsuit
For a bolder look, opt for a jumpsuit with the same styling as the Eileen Fisher slouchy pant. Made of 55 percent hemp and 45 percent organic cotton, it’s as easy on the environment as it is on your body.
Patagonia Cayo Largo Shirt
Patagonia is known for its commitment to sustainability, and this men’s utility shirt is an extension of that, as it’s made with a blend of organic, recycled and natural fibers. Pair with white or khaki slacks for a monochromatic look.
Hemp Raglan Long Sleeve T-Shirt
It may look like a classic baseball shirt, but its composition tells a different story. This long sleeve tee is made with 55 percent hemp, 45 percent organic cotton and eco-friendly dye, and has antimicrobial and moisture wicking properties, making it an eco-friendly spin on a wardrobe staple.

A bold throw pillow is another way to add some vibrance to a room, and this lime green hue can serve as a reminder of your eco-friendly choices. It features one textured and one smooth side, letting you switch things up when you want a different look.
Fantasy Organic Hemp Gummies
Hemp’s benefits aren’t confined to the environment. The substance is also thought to relieve pain and promote positive feelings. Pop one of these gummies when you want a pick-me-up, or if you just want a sugary treat. Flavors include cherry, lime, blue raspberry and orange.
