TSC Apparel inks deal to distribute Hemptown Clothing Inc. brand hemp fiber clothing – Brief Article

VANCOUVER, B.C. – Hemptown Clothing Inc. has received its largest ever wholesale distribution order, from TSC Apparel, one of America’s largest promotional apparel wholesale suppliers.

TSC will offer Hemptown’s line of environmentally friendly hemp fiber T-shirts and sportswear throughout the United States, including Hawaii and Alaska, from its warehouses in California, Ohio, and North Carolina. TSC began to showcase Hemptown products at the Jan. 16-18 Imprinted Sportswear Show in Long Beach, Calif.

“We’ve identified Hemptown as one of the hottest new companies in the garment industry, and anticipate doing some pretty good numbers with their line of innovative environmental clothing,” states Mike James, director of marketing for TSC Apparel. “We’d like to see these products be big sellers for years to come.”

Hemptown COO Jason Finnis said, “this is a great way for us to begin 2004,” adding that organizations as diverse as the San Diego Zoo, Warner Bros. and Hyundai Motors already have used Hemptown promotional clothing to sell in their stores, distribute to employees, and use at special events. “The word is out that hemp clothing is a more interesting, durable, environmentally sound alternative to cotton. Our products are really catching on!”

Hemptown was founded in 1995 in response to growing demand for environmentally friendly, socially responsible clothing. The company supplies wholesale imprinted promotion-wear distributors and private label customers throughout North America and the world from its head offices in Vancouver.

Hemptown is involved in ongoing research and development of quality and conservation-based textile technology, working vertically to enhance its products and the benefits they provide to crop farmers, consumers and the environment.
