LOS ANGELES, CA – October 6, 2016 Cartel Blue Inc. (OTC PINK: CRTL) is pleased to announce that after months of planning, its newly created eco-friendly hemp fabric division, EOC Underground, has finalized initial designs and production schedule.
Graphics were designed and hand-drawn by Los Angeles based Rebirth of Art’s artist Ian Hanna. EOC Underground’s debut of its urban streetwear collection includes men’s and women’s eco-friendly hemp t-shirts, hoodies and tote bags with hemp jeans vests and jackets to be added in second wave of production. A tasteful variety of hemp fabric finishes, fits, colors, graphics, washes and styles will highlight this new division of Cartel Blue Inc.
Interest in EOC Underground’s eco-friendly hemp fabric collection has been extraordinary. Once production is complete, over sixty stores have committed to purchasing EOC Underground’s apparel that will be available for consumer purchase this coming holiday season.
The Company’s President, David Rhodes, stated, “Hemp now meets fashion. Gone are the days of organic hemp clothing is offered only by tree-hugging artisans. Today the world of fashion and concern for the environment is opening its doors to hemp. Hemp fashion has hit the mainstream as clearly evidenced from EOC Underground’s extraordinary retail reception to its hemp apparel.”
Hemp apparel fabric exudes superior properties. It is one of the strongest and most durable of all natural textile fibers. Apparel products made from hemp will outlast their competition by many years. Not only is hemp strong, but it also holds its shape, stretching less than any other natural fiber. This prevents garments from stretching out or becoming distorted with use. Although hemp may be known for its durability, its comfort and style are second to none. The more hemp is used, the softer it gets. Hemp does not wear out, it wears in. Hemp is one of the natural fibers that possesses increased strength and absorbency, even more than cotton. Hemp fabrics can also be recycled more easily than other natural fabrics. Clothing made from hemp is resistant to mold, moisture, UV and UVB rays, is not easily discolored, is antibacterial and regulates the temperature.
