The pants and shirts use a blend of hemp and recycled polyester. The footwear shown also have uppers of hemp. As well as hemp uppers (and laces), it also features vegetable tanned nubuck leather, a natural rubber midsole, and a tongue padded with recycled polyester. A portion of its sales are donated to WWF.
