    LinkedIn

    Pakistani denim maker Artistic Garment Industries (AGI) said it has entered a one-year deal with Panda Biotech of Texas for the supply of an unspecified amount of cottonized hemp.

    AGI is headquartered in Karachi, where it also has a denim mill. The company runs cottonized hemp fiber through advanced manufacturing technologies that turn out denim. AGI said it is moving to scale up the use of sustainable raw materials in its products.

    “As we transition to a future that embraces more sustainable agriculture and processing practices in textiles, industrial hemp can help lead the way,” said Hasan Javed, AGI Denim’s executive director.

    AGI said it entered the arrangement, in part, based on Panda Biotech’s plans for establishing traceability in which the hemp fiber can be tracked from the field to finished products.
