Why hemp?

"Fashion made from hemp - sustainable, ecological and fair."

Hemp is one of the many wonderful plants that nature has given us and from which you can make all sorts of things. But most of us probably don't think of T-shirts, shirts and pants when we think of hemp. Not yet... But we want to change that!

Hemp is a true miracle plant for the textile market, because textiles made from the natural fiber hemp offer many advantages :

  • Low water consumption
  • No use of pesticides and herbicides
  • Fair production

Benefits of hemp clothing

The differences to cotton are already apparent in the production process . Industrial production requires much less land, water and no pesticides. Therefore, hemp clothing is free of harmful substances.

But the environmentally friendly and sustainable material also has other advantageous properties :

  • Hemp clothing is strong, durable and hard-wearing.
  • It feels very pleasant and is also suitable for sensitive skin.
  • Clothing made of hemp regulates temperature: it cools in summer and warms in winter.
  • Hemp is breathable.
  • The fibers have an antibacterial and antimicrobial effect, which means they prevent the formation of unpleasant odors.
  • Hemp fibers offer very good UV protection (up to 90%).
  • Hemp textiles are very easy to care for. Regular airing is often sufficient. This saves you having to wash them several times.
  • Moths and beetles are not interested in hemp fabrics because they do not eat proteins.
