Information about Hemp and other Products

Why Hemp?

Hemp is: Environmentally friendly 
Modern technology can make hemp the most practical environmentally sensible textile on the planet.  It is a natural, rapidly renewable crop, needs little if any pesticides, herbicides or fungicides and modest quantities of water.  Hemp fabric is warm in winter, cool and breathable in summer, organic, and can be blended easily with other textiles.

With the correct technology in place, it can provide a wide range of cloth textures, ranging from strong and durable to soft and comfortable.  Hemp's natural creamy colour eliminates the need for chlorine bleach.

Strength and durability
The quality of the fibre obtained from the hemp plant is what makes it outstanding against other natural fibres.  Due to its length (each fibre is as long as the plant itself, up to five metres), it can be spun into very durable material.

Hemp is up to 8 times the tensile strength and 4 times as durable as cotton.
Hemp can be extruded to make a soft silk-like fibre or used to make the strongest ropes.  It blends easily with other textiles to create both a very soft & durable fabric that feels good when worn.

Comfort
Hemp fabric breathes wonderfully against the skin.
