Prior to Hempzel Pretzels, No Problem Inc and owner Ralph Amato and friends did more work with hemp fabrics and textiles. Ralph used to have custom clothing produced - wedding gowns and they had produced in Allentown, Pennsylvania around 1997 hemp fiber & wool fiber converted into shoe laces. We have approximately a few hundred pair left - they are still fine but one of the former investors wants to convert his part of the business into cash - $3.00 for 72" & $2.50 for 52" - get them while we still have them in stock. Made in the USA. Put them on your favorite hemp shoes...
