Hemp is a luxuriously soft and highly durable fabric. It has natural thermoregulating properties due to the hollow structure of the fibre. Hemp is naturally moisture-wicking & odour resistant and becomes softer and more comfortable over time. It has antibacterial & antifungal properties which makes it a great choice for people with sensitive skin and allergies. At the end of its life cycle our hemp fabrics are 100% biodegradable and compostable.

Why buy hemp fabric?
Out of respect for nature and people working in a sector which is adversely affected by industrialization.
The textile sector is not only one of the biggest polluters due to its extensive use of chemicals, it also uses enormous amounts of water during production and unfortunately often employs people under very poor working conditions.
Hemp is a highly renewable and fast-growing plant; it can be harvested up to three times a year. It requires about halt the amount of water and can yield in 250% more fibre on the same land in comparison to growing cotton. The plant itself is a natural pest repellent & weed suppressant and therefore no pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilisers are needed. The hemp plant has amazing properties to replenish the soil with nitrogen and oxygen, restoring pH levels and combating erosion. And last but not least hemp has an unmatched ability to absorb and trap CO2 from the atmosphere.
The lack of transparency in the textile industry makes it extremely difficult for the consumer to trace the origin of their fabrics. We believe it shouldn’t be that hard. In order to achieve this, we think consumers need easy access to sustainable and ethically produced fabrics without harming our planet, the people that produce them and our health.
