We are very happy to introduce our new Purely Apricot Orange hemp curtain which is a lovely, soft shade of orange.

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. 

Please note these curtans are unlined.

...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.                                                

CARE

**Although hemp is known to be naturally resistant to mould and bacteria, please remember that it is a natural fabric that has not been treated with any chemicals so this cannot be guaranteed as it may depend on individual conditions. Opening the shower curtain and allowing it to dry properly in a well ventilated bathroom, with the window open, is recommended. If being used in a bath, it should be placed on the outside of the bath (ringing out any excess water at the hem if necessary) after use, for air circulation, to allow it to dry. 

TIP You may wish to use a clip/peg to attach the bottom of the shower curtain around the curtain rail to help it drip dry in the bath and providing the air circulation, if putting it outside of the bath is not possible. 

Please maintain and wash as necessary, which you can do on a gentle wash with a mild detergent (please remove all curtain rings when you wash the shower curtain). We recommend you iron whilst damp for best results and to reshape, it can then be hung to finish drying, we do not recommend tumble drying.  Hemp can also be dry cleaned. 

 

Please note it is possible that there may be some irregularities in the fabric, which should not be deemed a fault and is characteristic of a natural fabric.
