Welcome to the UK's oldest & largest supplier of Hemp fabrics with over 23 years experience in the use of pure Hemp and Hemp blends

Hanging Hemp Fabrics
Hemp Fabrics

The UK's leading sustainable fabric supplier. Currently the majority of clothes and design fabrics are made from cotton. The major global fibre crop, it is also the most environmentally harmful, using 25% of the world's agro chemicals, that's 25% of the herbicides, pesticides & fertilisers used by farming - worldwide! The mass introduction of chemical fertilisers, herbicides and pesticides has helped keep the price of cotton and other fibre and oilseed crops low. However, as pests have become more resistant to these chemicals, larger quantities are required, poisoning both land and water. Hemp, by comparison, needs little or no insecticides, no herbicides, produces a better quality fibre when grown organically while creating three times as much fibre, making it more environmentally friendly.

Recent breakthroughs in fabric technology have improved the quality of Hemp cloth dramatically. 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 truly Super-Fibre. Hemp fabrics have the look and feel of linen, without the care problems. Why not order our fabric swatch book and get a good look at the fabrics before ordering.

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 fabircs 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. Almost every fabric we sell from the Chinese mills is GOTS & OEKO-TEX Standard 100 approved. 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.
