Hemp, a sustainable fiber

What makes hemp sustainable? Hemp doesn’t need pesticides and herbicides to grow. Replenishes the soil and grows rapidly, making it possible to harvest multiple crops of hemp on the same land in one year. Compared to cotton, hemp uses less water than cotton and less land for more fiber. Hemp is a versatile crop that can be grown for food and textile uses.

Hemp clothing also has benefits to you. It can be made into different types of fabrics such as linen, canvas and jersey knit. It is durable, porous and breathable. The fibers take to dyes well, so they retain color longer than other fibers. These fabrics feature resistance to mold, mildew and UV rays. Your hemp clothing will get softer with each wash and will age gracefully!
