We’re just a bunch of sneaker heads who love boutique street fashion. Traveling around the world, looking for fresh threadz, our favorite pieces are one of kind, sometimes couture, sometimes straight up so dope people walk right up to you smiling and ask you where you found it. Limited edition runs. Stuff right off the catwalk. Indie garment lines. Unique works of handcrafted art made with love and thoughtfulness sometimes found on a shelf in the back next to the spray paint and kicks.
Cannacity® LLC was developed on one of these shopping trips. We were in Amsterdam, again, having just left the Milan International Film Festival and killing time before Paris fashion week, and dropping into coffeeshops and dispensaries we found one thing in common. If we wanted to bring home a classic underground 420 friendly T-shirt, the only graphic images you could choose from were plus signs and pot leaves, an image of Bob Marley or Marilyn Monroe smoking. Most importantly, none of these shirts were ever made of hemp. How could that be? Hemp is cheaper to produce, environmentally friendly, and when mixed with bamboo can make an incredibly soft material that everyone says becomes their favorite shirt.
