I recently stopped by the coolest pop up shop in downtown Denver. Cici Dunn owns and operates HoodLAB and distributes Hoodlamb jackets which are some of the most beautiful and elegant jackets I’ve ever seen. Not only does HoodLAB sell jackets, they also sell the coolest hats, caps, puffy earmuffs, scarves, mittens, t shirts and faux fur accessories. The best part about HoodLAB is that all the products are sustainable & ethical; made with hemp, recycled products, vegan and cruelty free. Hoodlamb jackets are some of the warmest you will find, are super high quality and last a really long time too!
HoodLamb CO aka HoodLAB is a family owned and operated HoodLamb Concept Store & World Agent for Amsterdam clothing label HoodLamb Hemp Tailors. They operate a wholesale showroom and e-store Hoodlabstore.com. They also work with companies that want to create branded sustainable merchandise for their crew and following.
HoodLAB’s signature clothing line, HoodLamb Hemp Tailors, contains design t-shirts, hoodies, furry hoodies, heavy-duty winter coats, knitwear and accessories’, all made from hemp, organic cotton and other recycled materials. Wonderful news for the conscious shopper is that HoodLamb since this season officially is PETA-approved!
HoodLAB also carries THTC (The Hemp Trading Company), THTC is multiple award-winning ethical and fair brand from London/UK with a broad range of organic t-shirts designs that will make you think.
What does HoodLAB carry for winter? A full winter line! Hemp is extra warm!

Cici’s tips for surviving winter in the Mountains: “Colorado has many microclimates and we got 300 days of sun here so it can be deceivingly beautiful and things can change rapidly due to the mountain landscape. Make sure you have good gear to help you stay warm and comfortable. Dressing in layers is always a good idea.” And don’t forget to shop HoodLAB! 🙂
