Substance is a luxury hemp clothing line that creates the softest tee. It was created to fill the niche of hemp fashion in the U.S. Hemp requires no herbicides or pesticides, requires less water, is drought resistant and is the perfect rotational crop as it puts minerals back into the soil as it is harvested. Replacing cotton with hemp would be a major step towards a more sustainable future. Lindas super soft, eco friendly fabric, is a winning combination to put a product on the market that aims to heal the planet at all levels.
