Hawthorne looks forward to an ongoing relationship with Jungle Boys to support the sales and marketing of the Luxx brand.
True Liberty Bags is a family-oriented business founded in 2009 in Sonoma County, Calif., initially to serve farmers, growers and vintners in the region and ultimately expanding into the #1 niche brand for cultivators.
