Hemp fabric is perfect for making 100% hemp home-ware textiles and mixes of cotton-hemp home-ware because of its unique qualities and its capacity as an industrial eco-crop to bring huge benefits to the ailing global environment.
As a fabric, hemp home-ware is absorbent, warm and soft but with a much higher durability than any other natural material. If you want proof that hemp home-ware is long-lasting and hard-wearing consider this – remnants of hemp fabric dating back to 8,000 years B.C.E. have been found by archaeologists!
Hemp home-ware fabrics are great for upholstery, curtains, tea towels, table-cloths and make wonderfully soft and comfortable duvet covers. The more you use your hemp home-ware duvets and bed covers, the softer they become.
The special nature of hemp’s hollow fibres allows air and moisture to pass through easily and it lifts perspiration off your skin and wicks it away to evaporate in the air. This is great for those nights when high temperatures are making you feel uncomfortable and unable to sleep, because hemp home-ware bed sheets keep you feeling cool and dry.
This amazing fabric has some completely unique natural properties such as being anti-bacterial and resistant to the growth of moulds, so it stays fresh-smelling and mildew-free in hot weather and damp/humid conditions. This makes hemp home-ware duvets, pillow cases, curtains and upholstery covers naturally hypo-allergenic and recommended for asthma and allergy sufferers. And the excellent insulating properties of hemp fibres also mean they are naturally warmer in cold weather!
As far as our precious environment is concerned, many experts believe that hemp fabric will overtake synthetics as the versatile, strong and healthy fabric that nature provided virtually tailor-made for a healthy planet and a sustainable future.
