To be made in Los Angeles. Again.

Minawear Luxury Hemp Loungewear is making the manufacturing switch from China back to Los Angeles.  It has been a huge learning experience for designer Mina Hegaard, to navigate the overseas manufacturing territory, and now it is time to bring it home again.

In order to bring the next production back to California, Minawear has launched a kickstarter campaign that offers pledge rewards from $5-$1000. For a small pledge of $5 Minawear will send you two colorful stickers,  for $10 a hand tie dyed SCRAPKIN by Mina, and for $28 a copy of Hemp for Victory, by Kenyon Gibson, which Mina wrote the textile chapter and Woody Harrelson wrote the foreword.  Bigger rewards range from hand dyed hemp tank tops and hemp pants on up to five complete hemp outfits or designing your own and a photo shoot with Mina to be posted on the site www.minawear.com.


Minawear has weathered the hemp industry through the rocky years of textile development, a recession, and the relentless question “Can you smoke it?” since 1998. Minawear has created earth friendly styles for celebrities like Woody Harrelson, Christian Slater and the original cast of Survivor.  Visit our celebrity page to see images:


Mina has diligently educated folks about the amazing qualities and uses of the industrial hemp plant, which by the way, will never get anyone stoned.  It is a distant cousin to the medicianal variety, and boasts over 25,000 applications including eco-friendly textiles, paper, fuel, building materials, plastics and food.

Mina chose to design exclusively with hemp not only to promote the legalization of the farming of the plant, but because it is the best natural fiber in the world for loungewear.  It is grown organically, and is the longest and strongest natural fiber in the world, so your pants are going to be around much longer than your average cotton pair.  Hemp is also temperature controlled, keeping you cool in the heat and warm in the cold.  It wicks and drys moisture, it has memory to hold its shape, it is UV ray protective, and anti-microbial, making it ideal for sensitive skin. Doctors recommend it especially for chemotherapy patients.

The Minawear vibe is casual, comfortable and timeless.  All the styles for men and women possess the versatility  coveted by hard core loungers.  The stretchy 55% hemp, 45% organic cotton specialty blend is ideal for travel, yoga, the  beach, and sleeping!  The material relaxes to fit your body, and wrinkles quickly fall away.  The more they are washed the softer they become, and the typical customer will end up buying mulitple pairs in the wide variety of colors that Minawear is famous for.

By making a pledge to help raise $15,000, you will be stimulating the economy by employing Americans with green jobs, and promoting the legalization of hemp farming in the US.  But best of all, you will be the proud owner of a pair of everlasting, fantastic Minawear Hemp Pants!
