Minawear was founded in 1998 by Mina Hegaard and her hemp activist brother Kenyon Gibson in Venice Beach California. Together they built the company to promote health, education, and the care of the planet. In 2007, the company was acquired by GeoMio, another Los Angeles based eco-fashion manufacturer.
Today Minawear is back in the hands of its namesake, and operating from Victoria Texas.

Kenyon resides in New York City, where he is a falcon artist, blogger and hemp activist.
