Welcome to the UK's oldest & largest supplier of Hemp fabrics with over 20 years experience in the use of pure Hemp and Hemp blends
Did you know that hemp fabric is the most environmentally friendly and sustainable of all natural fabrics? Hemp grows organically almost anywhere, which means no harmful pesticides, or fertilisers are used in the growing process. Hemp plants need just a fifth of the water that cotton requires to grow and the plants leave the soil in a better condition, enriching the ground. Every time you choose pure hemp fabrics or hemp fabric blends, you’re making a healthy and happy choice for the environment!
Modern advancements in fabric technology have improved the quality of Hemp cloth dramatically over the years. What was once a rough, unyielding fabric is now super soft and versatile. Thermo-dynamic, superior wicking, up to 5 times stronger than cotton, like for like - a true Super-Fibre. Hemp fabrics have the look and feel of linen, without the care difficulties (hemp is up to 8x stronger than linen).

Read about the 'Ethical & Environmental standards for our Chinese fabrics' here
1. Minimum labour standards Working hours: 8 hours per day. From 8am to 11am then 1pm to 6pm. Wage: In comparison to the average standard wages in the province according to Chinese government's figures, the wages paid at the mill are between 52% & 104% higher. No use of child labour or forced labour. No discrimination or harassment. We have assurances according to the Chinese labour law.And the mill also organises sporting activities for the workers.
2. Adding value, fair trade and sustainable livelihoods The mill emphasis is on the environmental protection and energy saving for hemp production; also looking for new methods to save time and lessen the waste. The mill is the pioneer in this industry, both a leader of hemp fabrics in China & the world as well.
3. Environmental standards. Almost all of our Chinese fabrics are organic, with the Hemp sourced from China and the cotton from Turkey. The mill we work with is the leader in the hemp field, they also work as a research institute for hemp, and they follow the environment protection law of China for production. The Organic Cotton in almost every fabric we sell from the Chinese mills is GOTS & OEKO-TEX Standard 100 approved, with the finished yarns being OCS certified. The Hemp is grown organically (being so easy to grow organically) but is not currently certified as the hemp is grown on hundreds of small farms and those individual farmers cannot afford the certification process. For our European fabrics, the Hemp comes from Hungary and is farmed organically but due to the current cost for testing each and every field (most of the fibre comes from farming collectives) it is too expensive for the farmers to pay for the actual certification.

We have a selection of vibrant and colourful pre-dyed fabric off-cuts and remnants. Dyed with our Eco Reactive Dyes.
These are either Short or Long standard pieces of fabrics that are odd lengths so it is an opportunity to buy a little bit more, or a little bit less than the standard lengths normally offered.
All perfect, just random lengths - they are priced per piece and are all one-of-a-length.
All random lengths are charged at the standard price, and based on their respective length. Please remember, due to the natural way that the plants have been grown and the minimal treatment of the fabric, no 2 rolls are the same; so no two pieces can be guaranteed as coming from the same roll.
Starting at: £7.18
