 Wama Underwear

This is a new one for me! I’ve loved seeing hemp used within some of my dresses and tees throughout the last few years, and they’ve held up incredibly well. With the rise in popularity of hemp as a fabric, I didn’t even think of how great it would be used as an undergarment. However, it makes total sense with the beneficial properties it possesses, and I'm happy to be seeing it used for these undies.

 Why I Love Wama Underwear

Natural Health Benefits of Hemp: So how exactly does hemp help us protect our privates? Well there are a few ways - Hemp is anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and has anti-odor properties. It’s also moisture wicking because of its porous nature making it breathable and comfortable. So yeah… why wouldn't we see more underwear made from this awesome fabric? 

Wears Well Over Time: The hemp fiber is one of the strongest and most durable of the natural fibers. When combined with other fibers, such as the organic cotton found in WAMA underwear, it becomes quite soft. Even after each wash, you will notice the fabric softening even more. It’s also resistant to mold and UV light, and retains color better than cotton. 

Less Water, Space & Pesticides: Hemp beats other natural fibers when it comes to space & the use of water and pesticides. According to, "Hemp can produce 250% more fiber than cotton and 600% more fiber than flax using the same amount of land". It also requires half the amount of water used to grow cotton, and doesn't rely on any pesticides or herbicides to thrive. 

GOTS Certified: This is one of my favorite certifications because of its transparency. With WAMA, you are able to feel confident in the hands that touched the product from material to manufacturing. China is one of the world leaders in hemp textiles, and the hemp/organic cotton blend used for the underwear is GOTS certified. The factories they have partnered up with offer employees fair wages and quality working environments. WAMA even has a team member based out of China to oversee the entire production. Also - For my vegan friends, you will be happy to know they are PETA-approved! 

Made for both Men & Women: Okay, since I’ve approved them, I will be getting a pair for Travis! He is pretty particular about his clothes, but I have a feeling he is going to be pretty happy with the Hemp Boxer Briefs. And don’t you just love when a brand has both men and women covered?!  

Guaranteed You’ll Love It: I don’t know about you, but there is something about those words ‘satisfaction guaranteed’ that give me confidence in a product. It shows they truly back up what they’ve created, and it gives you peace of mind before purchasing. 

Where to Purchase

After a successful Kickstarter campaign {seems like everyone was pretty excited for hemp undies!}, you can now purchase them in their online shop - here -
