Introducing Patagonia’s New Iron Forge Hemp Workwear

Kira Simpson

Sustainable fashion leader Patagonia have released a new workwear line of clothing made from iron Forge Hemp.

Each piece in the collection is comprised of 55% industrial hemp, 27% recycled polyester and 18% organic cotton. Patagonia says the canvas is durable, abrasion resistant and incredibly comfortable.

“25% more abrasion resistant than conventional cotton duck canvas, this innovative hemp blend forms the durable foundation of the Patagonia Workwear line. The industrial hemp fiber gives the canvas its toughness and durability; the recycled polyester and organic cotton provide a soft hand and allow a tighter weave.”

The range is also reasonably priced for tough workwear. Pants start from $79 and jackets from $179. You can shop the collection here.
