Greensboro, N.C.-based Cone Denim® is expanding its partnership with hemp processor BastCore LLC. The two companies will continue to collaborate to offer sustainable denim offerings while supporting American agriculture.
Cone recently introduced its U.S. Hemp Collection featuring BastCore U.S.-grown hemp
