What makes Hemp an excellent fiber for textiles: Considered to be one of the most environmentally friendly fibers, hemp is naturally resistant to pests, requires relatively little water, and grows quickly. Hemp is a “sister plant,” meaning it replenishes the soil for the crops around it and is ideal for crop rotation. Hemp feels like a new linen, softening with each wash and wear. Like linen, hemp moves easily with the body, is breathable and easy to wear across different seasons. Hemp wrinkles less and softens quickly with each wash and wear. Hemp growing and cultivation has minimal environmental impacts – and can even be beneficial.
