eco-friendly hemp fabrics
Hemp textiles are sustainable fabrics 100% plant derived (from cannabis sativa fibre). Hemp creates one of the most eco-friendly, durable and versatile fabrics in the world.
What are hemp fabrics?
The plant that produces this eco-friendly fabric is a particular variety of the cannabis plant. Due to the similar leaf shape, hemp is frequently confused with marijuana. All products manufactured from hemp are environmentally friendly, sustainable and free of psychoactive substances.
Hemp requires no pesticides, crowds out weeds without herbicides, controls erosion of the topsoil, and produces oxygen.
Hemp can be blended with other materials like organic cotton, recycled cotton, linen, etc. or with man-made fibres such as LYCRA®.
What are the benefits of hemp fabrics?
Hemp has the look of classic linen and can have the soft feel (depending upon fabric blend) of your favourite textile. Hemp materials will also soften with age and with each wash.
Responsible production process
When you choose hemp fabrics instead of other materials, you can potentially save water, energy and carbon emissions.
Hemp fabrics are extremely durable and versatile and they use 50% less water than cotton. Like linen and cotton, hemp is a good choice for warm, humid climates.
Hemp is a renewable resource that can be cultivated in as little as 100 days and is the world’s most versatile fibre.
