Millions of new jobs in Europe, with your support.
Once we Europeans make hemp our preferred textile material, millions of new jobs will be created in the EU, increasing our prosperity. This campaign is about making that commitent easy for you.
Employment for millions of Europeans with hemp
24.4 million men and women in the EU are unemployed (Eurostat, 2014) and run the risk of spending their lives in poverty. If you have a stable job and income, and wish to help creating the same for millions of Europeans, without paying additional taxes, read onward.
Imagine all that is made from trees, metals or petroleum.
Many things made from the above materials could also be made from hemp - a plant which can be grown anywhere in Europe, thus creating great economic opportunity in regions that might currently seem uninhabitable from an economic perspective.
Millions of new jobs through large-scale cultivation and refining of hemp in Europe will happen once we Europeans make hemp fabric our preferred textile. This campaign is about giving you the chance to make and keep that commitment - today.
Hampakompaniet is an European hemp textiles distributor, whose mission is to offer you well-designed, comfortable and affordable products made from hemp fabric. All produced in Europe, naturally.
Support this campaign by pre-ordering your hemp t-shirt
The main difference between Hampakompaniet and other textile distributors is that we will only offer textiles produced from raw materials which can be grown extensively in Europe. Hence, hemp fabric is our primary choice, as hemp yields on average ten times more raw material for fabric production than cotton.
By supporting this campaign, you make it possible for us to develop further. By august 2015 we would like to present you our autumn-winter collection of 2015/2016, which will include a much wider assortment of hemp fabric products, all of which will be produced in Europe. Our dream is continue developing this company, for the rest of our lives.
The hemp fabric t-shirts offered through this campaign will be the the most elegant and comfortable hemp t-shirts you've ever worn, as they will be made from an innovative material composition not available in the EU today. The t-shirts will be soft yet durable, eco-friendly yet anti-bacterial, elegant yet affordable.
Our project timeline is as follows:
- Funded By Me-campaign and gathering supporters for this project (up to 45 days, hopefully less)
- Production of hemp fabric and hemp t-shirts (up to 43 days)
- Transport of finished products to warehouse in Sweden (up to 20 days)
- Shipping of hemp t-shirts from Swedish warehouse to your local post agency (up to 10 days)
You will be holding your hemp t-shirts in hand no later than by the beginning of June 2015. For the duration of this project, every supporter will be kept up to date on how things are moving forward, through Hampakompaniet's Facebook-page, several times a week.
