We are very happy to offer our fantastic Purely Petrol Green hemp curtain as another eco-friendly alternative to less sustainable fabrics. Our Petrol Green has very rich, dark forest green/blue petrol tones that will make a stunning addition to your home. We are using a crisp and stylish "linen style" hemp which hangs beautifully.

Our price includes our attractive set of hemp rope rings, which are looped together to give a double ring which is attached to each eyelet, though you can use just one of the hemp ropes to shorten the length of the curtain, should you so wish. These hemp rope rings then loop over any standard curtain rail.                       

  Approx Dimensions -

143cm width x 200cm drop. Other sizes available (please see shower curtain categories for other sizes and colours in our Purely range)

Please allow for some tolerance in the dimensions shown and approx 7% shrinkage, if washing, when choosing your size. Hemp can also be dry cleaned,   

Please note that this curtain is unlined. As with other natural fabrics, please avoid direct sunlight to limit fading.             

...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 several years. In fact, growing hemp adds more than it takes out of the land, unlike cotton which depletes the soil of its nutrients. Industrial hemp has been cultivated for thousands of years, the fibres being renowned for their strength and durability, whilst the seeds are a great nutritional source of proteins, as well as providing other health and practical uses. 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.
