Haven’t you heard? Hemp is the new cotton! It’s Vacation Week on BTR, and this week’s guest has designed the *perfect* t shirt to pack for the beach. Robert Jungmann launched his hemp-based label, Jungmaven, after spending time in Costa Rica where he learned about natural dyeing techniques. Now, Jungmaven offers a variety of beautifully crafted 100% hemp and hemp-blend designs, the line is carried in shops from Urban Outfitters to Zady, and Robert is on a mission to see everyone in a hemp t shirt by 2020. Join us on today’s show as Robert talks about his introduction to hemp as a textile and its incredible, unique properties; why hemp could be the sustainable answer to the future of farming and manufacturing; a few of his own favorite vacation spots; some upcoming projects and collaborations for the brand, and more!
Plus, a vacation-centric playlist with new music from The Milk Carton Kids, Hot Chip, and Heartless Bastards, along with tracks off the debut albums from Bent Denim and Guts Club. So join us this hour as we take a vacation from the cotton t, with Sew & Tell on BTR!
