BEHIND THE BRAND
I'm Hannah, the founder of Hempton.
Firstly, Thank you for visiting our page. By supporting our brand, not only are you supporting an ethical and sustainable change in fashion but you are also supporting me as a women entrepreneur.
In 2018 I quit my 9-5 job alongside my husband and we went off the explore less travelled parts of the World.
After almost a year of living out of just a 10kg backpack, I realised that there are not many good quality travel clothing brands for every day travel or backpacking. It was then that I realised the devastating effects that fast fashion is currently having on our beautiful planet.
I spent the next few months researching how I could make the perfect travel clothes whilst being very conscious about the effects it has on Earth. I looked at many fibres when I discovered the Super Plant that is Hemp... and that's where Hempton blossomed.
If you're on this page, you most likely share my love for travel and the planet and I can't wait to hear where you will travel in Hempton.

Because we are a small start up, we launched firstly on Kickstarter where we were successfully funded. Due to the success, we have decided to offer our pre-sales on our website also for the next few months. All of our shirts are expected to be delivered to you in October, or earlier.
