SUBSTANCE is a revolutionary hemp clothing line that combines the art of fashion with political and cultural awareness. Originally inspired by Jack Herer’s book “The Emperor Wears No Clothes,” SUBSTANCE uses the voice of fashion to encourage an industrial transition towards hemp that would bring jobs back to the US and allow for a more sustainable lifestyle. Our Mission is to educate through fashion and to provide pleasure with purpose.
Made in Los Angeles, SUBSTANCE’s amazingly soft, fashion forward hemp apparel quickly becomes your favorite piece of clothing.
To raise funds and promote our initial product launch, we are getting ready to offer pre-sales on Kickstarter!
Thanks for being part of the solution!
Linda Werner, The Hempress
