Vancouver, British Columbia — Hemptown Clothing Inc. has received its largest ever wholesale distribution order, from TSC Apparel, one of America’s largest promotional wear distributors. TSC will offer Hemptown’s line of environmentally friendly hemp fiber T-shirts and sportswear throughout the United States, including Hawaii and Alaska, from its warehouses in California, Ohio, and North Carolina. TSC will launch sales immediately, and showcase Hemptown products at the January 16th, 17th and 18th 2004 Imprinted Sportswear tradeshow at Long Beach, California. Over 13,000 clothing industry representatives are expected to attend.

“We’ve identified Hemptown as one of the hottest new companies in the garment industry, and anticipate doing some pretty good numbers with their line of innovative environmental clothing,” states Mike James, Director of Marketing for TSC Apparel. “We’d like to see these products be big sellers for years to come.”

“TSC Apparel will promote our hemp shirts and caps to its 40,000 customers — screen printers, embroiders, and private-label buyers — from coast to coast,” says Hemptown COO Jason Finnis. “This is a great way for us to begin 2004.” Finnis adds that organizations as diverse as the San Diego Zoo, Warner Bros. and Hyundai Motors already have used Hemptown promotional clothing to sell in their stores, distribute to employees, and use at special events. “The word is out that hemp clothing is a more interesting, durable, environmentally-sound alternative to cotton. Our products are really catching on!”

The company supplies wholesale imprinted promotion-wear distributors and private label customers throughout North America and the world from its head offices in Vancouver, British Columbia. Hemptown has established itself as the standard in socially responsible sportswear.
