Hemp Furnishings

By Posted in - Interior Products on January 13th, 2020

Hemp* is one of the strongest and most durable natural textile fibres and is used for a range of products from rope, clothing to building materials. It is make using the fibres from the stalks of the Cannibis Sativa plant which not the same kind of cannabis which gets all the publicity but it is in the same plant family.

Renowned as a natural product, hemp has natural antibacterial properties, is excellent at moisture absorption (can absorb moisture up to three times more than cotton), breathable, inhibits the growth of bacteria and is one of the best eco-friendly textiles around. 

In regards to its green credentials, hemp takes approximately 14 weeks to grow so is highly sustainable. There is also no need for pesticides (it’s unpalatable to insects) or herbicides as it grows too quickly for weeds to compete – this makes it an easy crop to grow organically. Hemp is also carbon negative which means that more carbon is taken out of the atmosphere by the growth of the hemp plant than is emitted from its production. The same growing hemp is far better for the planet than growing cotton.
