WHY HEMP FOR FABRICS?Hemp Fabric Bed

Hemp fabrics have arrived that are so soft, strong & breathable but also insulate, drape beautifully and crease less, that even the hardened sceptic understands this fibres amazing abilities.  As a fabric, hemp is antibacterial, breathable, versatile, strong & durable, ultra absorbent and extremely soft. It can be mixed with silks, organic cottons & wools and produces a beautiful textile comparable to anything from linen to muslin to fleece and denim; with no compromise on quality or appearance.

If this makes sense to you, then it's time to think WHY NOT HEMP ? Looking for more information, then try our BLOG

To read about the 'Ethical & Environmental standards for our Chinese fabrics' click 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. 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.
