25% more abrasion resistant than conventional cotton duck canvas, this innovative hemp blend forms the durable foundation of the Patagonia Workwear line.
Industrial hemp has been used for millennia to make cordage, sails, heavy-duty tackle and countless other wares. It was also the original source material for canvas work cloth—so when we set out to make better clothing for the hardest work, we knew exactly where to start.
Built for the hardest work, our heavy-duty Iron Forge Hemp™ canvas needs no break-in and offers excellent strength, comfort and mobility for almost any trade or task.
The industrial hemp fiber gives the canvas its toughness and durability; the recycled polyester and organic cotton provide a soft hand and allow a tighter weave.
Like most hands-on labor, the requirements for work clothing have stayed the same over the years: let you lift, move, heave and haul while keeping the elements at bay. Whether it's innovative hemp blends or warm, super durable synthetics, Patagonia Workwear is built for comfort, freedom of motion and long-lasting durability.SHOP
