Gramicci's Exclusive Hemp Knits:

Our summer weight exclusive hemp weave is ultra lightweight and durable (the Camura DT and Senna Hemp). Knitted in a “Double Traverse” patented diagonal knit by custom machines imported and wholly owned by Gramicci. This knit absorbs 6-8 times the moisture of synthetic blends and a more durable yarn by the nature of its yarn length. Made with a “slub” fiber that is knotted fiber, adds texture and loft for breathability.

-Hemp is an anti-microbial fiber - virtually eliminating bacteria associated with body odor. The Double traverse knitting is a porous knit promoting ventilation and faster drying capabilities. Hemp's long fiber make naturally highly durable.

-Gramicci is also a vertical manufacturer, as a major investor in re-claimed toxic lands in China- we are revitalizing the barren land with the re-cooperative properties of the hemp plantations. This process is called “phyto-remediation”, in 2 years, or 20 crops the land is fertile and viable for additional land usage.
