Hemp was already used 10,000 years ago and has many environmental advantages compared to cotton and other fibers, such as reduced water use and pesticide-free farming. Hemp grows quickly and can grow in nutrient-poor soil, it also binds the soil with its long roots which means it prevents soil erosion. The amount of water needed to produce hemp is lower than for cotton. For example, conventional hemp has less environmental impact than organic cotton. Additionally, hemp is one of the strongest natural fibers on the planet. A product with a clear conscience in the highest quality!
In the pictures you see both washed and unwashed Hemp. Can be ironed completely smooth, as it is a natural fiber, the color may vary slightly. But we think it's beautiful.
