The Hempest on Newbury St. in Boston's Back Bay opened in 1995. Since then, they've continued to sell hemp clothing - made from the rapidly renewable cannabis sativa plant which requires fewer resources and pesticides than other fiber-producing plants. Many are hesitant about hemp as a fabric material because it is derived from the cannabis plant, but others see this as a viable way creating domestically made, organic and ethically sourced clothing for Americans. Hemp is also incredibly durable, making it both versatile and long lasting. The Hempest offers hundreds of sustainability-sourced items to Bostonians, so make sure to check it out on your next shopping trip.
