HoodLamb by Hemp Tailor – review & where to still find items

Connection to Fresh Headies/Bubble Bags

For over 12 years, we were the Canadian distributor for Hemp HoodLamb. Our founder Marcus Richardson aka “Bubbleman”  met the creators at a conference in Amsterdam, and developed a connection to the folks and their wonderful clothing line, leading to his company, Fresh Headies Internet Sales Ltd, makers of the original Bubble Bags, becoming their distributor for Canada. We used to distribute to over 30 stores across Canada. Unfortunately for it’s many fans worldwide, Hempworks International Limited ceased operations in September 2020, declaring bankruptcy.

Where to buy

Here’s a list that we put together of sites what we know of where you can still find authentic Hemp HoodLamb clothing. To add to this list, please email us at hoodlamb@bubblebag.com.

Watch out for scam sites
Please be careful when searching for authentic Hemp HoodLamb products online. Now that Hemp Tailor/Hemp HoodLamb company shut down, fraud sites can take advantage of them no longer being in business and pretend to sell non existent items. If you see a site with many styles, especially older ones, available, and in a wide range of sizes, you can be sure it’s a scam. We found multiple sites that look the same, while doing a search for product images & other resellers.

~ At a Quick Glance

  • Founded: 1993
  • Origin: Amsterdam
  • Located: Global
  • Focus: Winter Clothing
  • Sustainable Materials: Hemp
  • Most Popular Item: Nordic Light for Men

Hoodlamb is a revolutionary Dutch clothing company that specializes in hemp-based winter wear and outerwear apparel. They were the first brand to create a winter jacket made out of hemp. This was their original vision long before they were the brand that they are today. Now, they boast a wide range of stylish hemp clothing that caters to all occasions and seasons.

~ Backstory

Hoodlamb was born from the Dutch North Sea when a group of surfers found themselves unable to find a jacket that could cater to all of their needs. The surfers unanimously agreed that they wanted something that would keep them warm, but would not be destroyed if worn immediately after getting out of the notoriously cold North Sea water. They also wanted it to be a product that was in harmony with the environment – something that would fit in with their lifestyle of connecting to nature. Some of the surfers were cannabis users with a high interest in the uses of cannabis beyond its recreational purposes.
They started to experiment with hemp fabric and hemp-based furs. Soon, their idea materialized as Hoodlamb’s first winter jacket. It embodied their lifestyle and morals, was functional for what they needed, and was even fitted with a double zipper to make it possible to wear while changing out of a wetsuit.A few miles inland from the North Sea, Hoodlamb’s headquarters can now be found in Amsterdam. Hoodlamb has been around since 1993 but their business has grown and changed drastically from their humble beach beginnings.In the ’90s, Hoodlamb started as a small group of creators who used to make everything themselves in Amsterdam using local materials from markets and scraps from factories. Working out of a small inner-city art studio, their early days were highly experimental and required the daily input of a small creative team.Their production has now been outsourced to China where they have their own factory run by ethical labor standards. China is the world’s biggest producer of industrial hemp, so it seemed like an obvious option to them once their business started to grow. China can have a bad reputation when it comes to factory production, but Hoodlamb creators have gone the extra mile to ensure that their clothing is being created ethically and that their products are being sourced sustainably. Their move to China was motivated by their booming business needing to expand beyond what a small Amsterdam workshop can handle. Hoodlamb is still best known for their winter wear. It is hard to come across ethical and sustainable brands offering winter and outdoor wear, and they have been pioneering this market since their early days. Their original aim of creating a warm, durable jacket that would be stylish and strong enough to survive the cold, wet Dutch winter, is still a vision that they are aligned with today. Using a combination of old and new methods of hemp production, they revolutionized the hemp clothing market with their fashionable and comfortable winter clothing.Although their early days were focused on winter clothing, Hoodlamb now creates clothing for every season and occasion. They are leaders in hemp outdoor apparel with clothing that is known to be both comfortable and durable. Durability is one of the many benefits of hemp clothing. Hemp has been shown to outdo cotton competitors time and time again.Hoodlamb’s mission is all about sustainability. They advocate cruelty-free production, ethical working standards, and promote hemp use over cotton or other unsustainable textiles. It is no surprise that they are recognized as leaders in the sustainable apparel movement. Their cruelty-free methods of production have even granted them PETA-approved status.They donate 10% of profits to Sea Shepherd, a global ocean conservation organization. Their love for the ocean, nature, and creating cruelty-free clothing made this an obvious choice for Hoodlamb who have been partners with Sea Shepherd since they first reached commercial success.Sustainable Sweaters from Hoodlamb are shedding light on the cruelty of the wool industry. Hoodlamb believes that wool is cruel and unethical, insisting that it is not natural for sheep to be shaved for their wool. Their website cites studies from PETA that have uncovered the shocking and cruel environments that sheep are kept in to be shaved for wool – going as far as to make claims that workers will physically abuse, step on, and kick sheep that they are harvesting wool from. Hoodlamb’s alternative to this is their Sustainable Seaters. Sustainable Sweaters are made from hemp, cruelty-free, and soft and comfortable enough to want to live in all winter long.‘Cozy. Conscious. Cruelty-Free.’ is the motto aligned with Hoodlamb’s sweater range, and it is easy to see why.Hoodlamb Sweaters are all hemp-based, offering the same warmth and comfort as wool with extra durability and sustainability.Hoodlamb’s clothing is affordable when considering the quality that is offered. Their products are designed to last, and the price tags are not too high. Their clothing ranges cater to mass markets, offering both stylish formal wear, casual wear, and outdoor wear. Their clothing comes in European sizes from XS to L. XL, but larger is not available.Hoodlamb creators are proud of their faux-fur, having said that this is what makes them iconic. They create realistic fur-like textiles using a mixture of acrylic, hemp, and recycled materials. Their faux-fur is so lifelike that PETA has congratulated them on helping to curve the fur market. They make sure that fur is free of any harmful substances and guarantee it to be a beautiful and warm addition to any wardrobe.

~ Q&A’s

Why is hemp superior to cotton?
Cotton is grown in a mono-culture which is bad for the land and speeds up the growth of pests and disease. Cotton uses pesticides – hemp does not.Cotton requires a lot of water, hemp requires little to no extra water. Hemp grows extremely fast and produces much larger harvests than cotton in a shorter period of time.
What makes hemp sustainable?
Planting hemp enriches the soil, and leaves it better than when it was planted! Very little water is used in hemp production, so there is little water waste. Hemp grows up to 15 feet in 90 days! It east C02, making it the only carbon negative fabrics on the market.
What are the benefits of hemp products?
Hemp products are biodegradable, durable, recyclable and new technology has made them extremely versatile.
How can Hoodlamb guarantee ethical labor in China?
Hoodlamb’s Chinese factories are certified by the International Institution for Workers Rights, Safety and Well Being. They visit their small, privately run factories multiple times per year to ensure that health and safety standards are being met and to see the conditions for themselves.

Hemp Tailor Offers Fur- and Down-Free Jackets to Get You Ready for Winter
Amsterdam-based outerwear brand
Published by PETA.

Hemp Tailor (formerly HoodLamb by Hemp Tailor) continues to be a leader in the sustainable fashion industry. With its faux-fur lining made from recycled plastic bottles, Hemp Tailor offers an eco-friendly and animal-free choice for anyone who knows how cruel Canada Goose’s feather-and-coyote-fur jackets are. Plus, its new knitwear collection, made with recycled hemp and organic cotton, was selected as the Best Wool-Free Collection by PETA U.K. Ladies nordic parka © Hemp Tailor

Hemp Tailor’s light but sturdy jackets feature vegan materials such as Zelan R3, a weather-resistant coating that’s derived from renewably sourced plant materials and one of the strongest environmentally friendly ways to protect your gear from the elements. Select styles also incorporate REPREVE insulation, a feather-free down that keeps wearers warm even in the most frigid temperatures.

“We are urgently expanding our efforts to reverse the harmful effects of today’s fashion industry,” Hemp Tailor states on its website. Hemp’s sustainability and durability make it the perfect material for animal-friendly outerwear. From insulated puffer jackets to wool-free knit sweaters, you can find everything that you need to stay warm this winter.

While companies like Canada Goose are stuffing their jackets with the feathers of birds who were violently killed, others like Hemp Tailor are leading the vegan fashion revolution with superior, innovative fabrics that are better for animals and the planet. PETA encourages compassionate shoppers to wear their values on their sleeve by choosing retailers whose products are kind to animals and the environment.

Birds used in down production often spend their entire lives in crowded, filthy conditions and are denied water to swim and bathe in, the opportunity to forage for food, and, sometimes, even enough room to turn around.

Hemp Tailor x PETA

Hemp Tailor outerwear is as fashionable as Canada Goose products are nasty. By purchasing a 100% animal-free Hemp Tailor coat or jacket, you won’t just be spoiling yourself—you’ll be actively choosing to support a forward-thinking brand championing the sustainable vegan fashion revolution. Urge Canada Goose to ditch fur and down, and get your Hemp Tailor outerwear today.

COVID-19 Notice

  • We’re taking every precaution to prevent the spread of COVID-19
  • We’re currently still processing online & phone orders

COVID-19 is having a dramatic impact on our lives, businesses, and on supply chains.

We at Fresh Headies Bubble Bags are aware and have implemented special working and employment and shipping practices.

Following the guidance of global health experts at the World Health Organization (WHO) and the BC and Canadian Health Authorities, we are reminding our employees about frequent hand washing, and we are regularly cleaning and disinfecting our facilities and equipment. Importantly, we are asking that employees stay home from work if they feel sick.

Many people are asking the same question: is it safe to receive and handle a package from us through UPS and Canada Post. The WHO and Health authorities have stated that the likelihood of catching the COVID-19 virus by touching cardboard or other shipping containers is low. Both Canada Post and UPS have implemented stringent controls and practices to avoid, minimize risk, throughout the transaction, from our employees, shippers, couriers and ultimately our customers and end users.

We are at this time working hard to maintain business and customer service except where limited by government restrictions. However, turnaround times and responses may suffer longer waits or delays, as with receiving new stock and updates.

Fresh Headies appreciates that as a leader in this industry we must be among those taking the lead and doing the right things to get us all through this and flatten the curve and be able to bounce back after this crisis and pandemic.

As this situation is evolving rapidly, we will update as we know more or are instructed to modify our working situations etc.

Our team is working to continue to serve the needs of customers both retail and resellers during this time, while keeping our employees and customers safe.

Our retail outlet in Vancouver is closed to the public, but we welcome online & phone orders for no- contact pick up at a prearranged time, in our back parking lot.

We want to thank our staff and customers during this stressful time, and that you for trusting us with your business and extraction needs. We look forward to seeing you once all this passes.

Stay safe, keep your distance and wash your hands.
