Hand or machine wash your 100% hemp boxers cold with like colors. No bleach. Hang or lay flat to dry. If you throw these hemp drawers in the dryer, they will crumple up (like flax linen) and you will have to iron them. They might also shrink a little lengthwise. Dry heat from drying machines is hard on hemp and flax fibers.

What are hemp boxers like?
Hemp fabric feels similar to linen fabric. It breathes well, keeping you comfortable in warm weather and cozy in cool weather. Hemp fiber's hollow cores act as efficient insulators.
Who buys your hemp boxers?
Hemp purists and eco-aware folks the world over. People suffering from multiple chemical sensitivities (the natural color is the safest bet in this case) and severe allergies. Folks attending hemp wedding ceremonies. And more and more new people who are becoming aware of the power of the hemp plant and hemp products in reversing the damages done by Global Warming.
Our elegant and earth-friendly hemp boxers are made exclusively for us from certified organic European hemp that is processed without chemicals of any kind. The fabric is a soft, cozy, and lightweight (but strong) 100% hemp linen that weighs in at 5.75 oz/square yard.
The hemp linen fabric is supremely breathable & very efficient at wicking away moisture and will keep you comfortable year-round, even on the hottest of days. Hemp Boxers get even softer with each wash. Your patience in wearing these truly mindful hemp boxers in will be rewarded with a trusty pair of oh-so-cozy and earth-friendly boxers.
Some of our hemp boxers have one tagua nut button at the fly (sustainably harvested from the Amazon Rainforest).
Why hemp and organic cotton underwear? Because...it takes one-fourth of a pound of chemicals to produce 2 pairs of conventional cotton men's boxer shorts. Annually, 275 million pounds of pesticides are applied to the conventional cotton plant, which must be the most environmentally destructive crop ever. The pesticides and chemicals used in the growing and processing of conventional cotton can enter the human food chain via cotton seed oil used in processed foods.
Contamination of ground water is directly linked to pesticide & fertilizer use on conventional cotton crops. Nitrates found in these fertilizers are found to cause "blue baby syndrome" in infants. Conventional cotton underwear is also processed with chlorine bleach. Dioxin — the most toxic chemical known — is a carcinogen that is derived from chlorine bleach and is responsible for hormone disruption and a host of other ills.
