Jungmaven founder Robert Jungmann has been working with hemp textiles since 1993. Jungmaven began with a process called batiking which takes patience and time. Today, many styles are hand crafted in the same manner in Los Angeles, CA.

Jungmaven's goal is to get everyone in a Hemp T-Shirt by 2020. Large scale commercial farming of industrial hemp is a key ingredient in helping slow global climate change. America was founded on hemp, a crop that if grown in the USA would create billions of dollars in jobs and products. Farm to table hemp is a super food for the Earth that both Presidents Washington and Jefferson grew. Hemp clothing dates as far back as 3,000 B.C. The Declaration of Independence was written on hemp. It's a natural resource to be grown in every state from Maine to Alaska by 2016. Jungmaven hopes to lead the hemp revival by producing incredibly well made, strong and stylish tee shirts made in L.A.
