I’ve heard it before, too. They say the first Levis were made of hemp. Unfortunately, Levis tells us that they used cotton from the Amoskeag Cotton and Woolen Manufacturing Company. Great idea though… lol Some say, Jack Herer, the great “Emperor of Hemp”, started the rumour as part of his American cannabis rights campaigns. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp wordsmith 0 Questions 256 Answers 0 Best Answers 531 Points View Profile wordsmith 2020-06-26T12:17:28-04:00Added an answer on June 26, 2020 at 12:17 pm Hemp fiber has served humanity for thousands of years to create fabrics and canvass. It was indeed a common material for clothing because of its durability and versatility. As per Gregorio Crini’s Sustainable Agriculture Reviews 42 book, Levis Strauss’s original denim jeans designed for the Navy were made from hemp because of its flexibility, strength, and resistance to water damage. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Abe Melbourne, Australia 2 Questions 238 Answers 0 Best Answers 559 Points View Profile Abigail 2020-06-21T10:01:54-04:00Added an answer on June 21, 2020 at 10:01 am Hey guys, let’s not give credit to such rumors, when you think it through you will learn that there’s no benefit in even repeating these strange words is worthless.
