In our 25+ year history we’ve been on a constant mission to promote hemp fabrics as the number one eco-friendly fabrics choice. In the list of sustainable fabrics hemp has arguably the greatest credentials, making it the absolute best choice for the planet. Above organic cotton, above bamboo (which really is not that eco-friendly when you start looking into it) and above other sustainable fibres and textiles, hemp leads the pack. We go into much more details about why hemp is the best choice when it comes to sustainable textiles in our dedicated “Why Hemp Fabrics?” page, so be sure to head over there and give it a read.
When it comes to sustainable fabric suppliers in the UK, we’ve been in the business for longer than anyone else. During that time we have seen hemp fabrics evolve and develop into something that can rival cotton for its softness and versatility. Replacing cotton as the primary source of fibre for clothing would have a huge positive impact on the environment. Cotton production accounts for 25% of all agricultural chemical use on the planet, it requires lots of water and land, while depleting the natural nutrients in the soil. Hemp is the exact opposite, requiring little water, less land to produce higher yields of fibre and absolutely no chemicals to grow abundantly.
