Why buy Hemp?

Hemp makes one of the most eco friendly fabrics available and it does not need any nasty chemicals to grow. Unlike cotton, it is a sustainable resource that is naturally resistant to most pests, so there is no need for pesticides. The plant needs little help to thrive. It requires less water than cotton to grow and is so prolific and tightly spaced that fertilizers and herbicides are also unnecessary, as there is no room for weeds.With its deep root system it grows without negatively affecting the soil and can therefore be grown for Doc says...Why Buy Hemp?several years. In fact, growing hemp adds more than it takes out of the land, unlike cotton which depletes the soil of its nutrients.

It is a most efficient crop to grow with its relatively short cycle and many uses, such as nutritional hemp seeds, paper, bodycare products, detergents, pet foods and even insulation, but it should not be confused with its illegal cousin (in comparison it contains just a trace of THC, not even enough to bring a smile to your face).

Hemp fabric is a textural, naturally attractive fabric that can be produced in various weights, so is suitable for the finest of apparel to heavy duty upholstery. It is naturally UV resistant and absorbent, and is also known for its anti-bacterial, anti-mould** (see below) and insulative qualities. It feels soft and has a contemporary elegance, suitable for today's more simple taste.
