At the core of our design philosophy lies the use and promotion of hemp. Hemp is one of the most environmentally friendly fabrics in the world and has been used throughout the ages for innumerable purposes. As one of the strongest fibers on the planet, it is also the most resource-efficient, adding nutrients to the soil and requiring absolutely no pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers to grow
Water-Resistant Hemp Cellulose Treatment
HoodLamb’s environmentally friendly water resistant coating is made from natural cellulose derived from the hemp plant. This eco-conscious method of weather proofing shows outstanding performance in wet, windy or cold conditions and provides a sustainable alternative to the polluting chemicals found in many other weather resistant treatments.

One of the most innovative ways of making fashion more sustainable is by using post-consumer plastic bottles to make fabric.The PET bottles are cleaned and melted down; then the plastic is stretched into a fine thread, which is woven into soft, durable, beautiful fabric.HoodLamb SatifurTM lining is made using certified organic hemp, recycled plastic, and acrylic.
HoodLamb uses a “duck-less” insulation from Thermore Rinnova. Thermore Rinnova is made from 100% recycled PET bottles and offers excellent warmth, a soft hand, and easy care. Each garment made with Rinnova recycles up to 10 bottles. A jacket insulated with Thermore Rinnova saves enough energy to keep a 10W light on for 100 hours.
HoodLamb’s first signature design feature was the double-zipper, added to enable our surfer-founders to get in and out of their wetsuits while wearing their jackets. Our commitment to making HoodLambs not only comfortable but functional continues to inform our designs. Today’s HoodLambs come with signature features such as smart pockets hidden in the faux-fur lining, microfiber lined sunglass pockets for safe storing and cleaning, sleeves with thumbholes to prevent the cold from creeping in, faux-fur lined hand-warmer pockets, earplug loops, and magnetic pocket closures.
