A few years ago, our co-founders met as freshman in the dorms at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo. They discovered their shared passion for the outdoors, and wanted to make a positive impact on the environment. In pursuit of a meaningful cause to channel their skills, they discovered that the clothing industry is the second largest polluter in the world. Thus, they set out to create a brand promoting a sustainable alternative to traditional outerwear and Bract Company was born.
Bract Company creates sustainable hemp outerwear. Traditional outerwear is made from cotton or synthetic fabrics, benifiting the wearer at the cost of harming the environment it is meant to be used in. We knew there must be an alternative fabric that could maintain a high level of quality, functionality, and affordability, without jeopardizing the world around us. After conducting extensive research, we found that hemp is the optimal solution. Hemp fabrics provide a plethora of natural advantages, while remaining one of the worlds most sustainable textiles.
