This organic canvas fabric just got even better with advances in fibre technology, with a smoother yarn and high-quality finish. This is a heavyweight, thicker, warmer material, yet it’s still extremely flexible and soft with a great range of uses. Perfect for interiors as blankets, curtains and more.

We're really impressed with this heavyweight organic fabric, not only is it 100% hemp which is always our favourite, it's also just so versatile! This is a heavyweight, tight-weave fabric that somehow still remains pliable and soft, it's almost playful in the way that it handles and drapes. We're sure you're going to love it as much as we do!

This is a great fabric for making your own backpack or bag, as the tight weave and hard-wearing natural canvas fabric is perfectly set-up to deal with the responsibilities of a daily use rucksack, holdall or shoulder bag. Likewise, if you wanted to make your own eco-friendly tote bag, then this heavy duty organic fabric would be an excellent choice!

When it comes to clothing, we think this sustainable fabric would make great canvas jeans, a heavy canvas shirt or jacket. The hemp canvas fabrics feels so nice and soft to the touch, while being incredibly hard-wearing and durable.

This sustainable fabric is perfect for your home furnishing, interior design or upholstery projects. It makes great cushion covers, chair covers, blankets and throws, or even a lightweight eco-friendly floor runner or bathmat. The possibilities for using this organic fabric around the home are endless!

Hemp fabrics wear in, they don't wear out. This means that the more you use and wash your hemp fabric, the softer it becomes. You're sure to love items made from this organic canvas fabric more with every year, as they will only get softer with time! We all know that keeping items we already own is more environmentally friendly than buying new, which is another reason to love your hemp fabric.

A few things to consider when buying our fabrics...


Please note, natural fabrics will shrink when washed anywhere from 5%-12% depending upon the weave and composition. Always pre-wash first to desired temperature.

All natural fabrics will shrink unless they have been hammered by high temperature washes, treatments and finishes - all of that contributes to a larger footprint on our planet - at the hemp shop we never do that.

Priced by the metre

Priced per full metre length plus offers on 10m, 25m, 50m & 100m. For orders of 50m and above, please contact us for stock/delivery times.

Always order a swatch first

We always recommend checking with a new swatch before ordering, as the minimal treatment and organic cultivation methods may result in subtle changes in the hemp fibres from batch to batch. So the fabric you bought last year might be subtly different to the fabric you buy today.

Check for faults, imperfections or marks

Please check the fabric for any faults, imperfections or marks as soon as it arrives, as we are unable to accept returns of washed or cut fabric. Due to the minimal sustainable methods used during the production of the yarns, our fabrics are never intensively bleached, and as such they retain all of their natural character. Slubs and slight discolourations in hemp fabrics are not flaws, they are part and parcel of working with such pure and natural fibres.

Cut fabrics are non-refundable

Please note, that once sent, all cut fabrics are non-refundable so please order a swatch if uncertain.

Hemp fabric is...

Biodegradable, compostable and recyclable

Hemp is a natural plant fibre. It is 100% biodegradable and does not harm the environment in any way!


It keeps you warm when it’s cool and cool when it’s hot.

Antibacterial, antifungal and anti-allergen

Hemp naturally fights off bacteria and fungi such as mold, keeping your fabric smelling fresh. It's also hypoallergenic, making it a perfect choice for anyone with allergies to other natural fibres.

Breathable and insulating

Hemp’s hollow shafts mean it is breathable, and also insulating.

UV resistant

Hemp is the worlds only naturally UV resistant fabric, perfect for keeping the harmful rays of the sun from damaging your skin.


Hemp is an extremely durable, hard wearing fabric. 5x the tensile strength of cotton and 3x more durable. It also gets softer with age.


Hemp is a highly absorbent fabric, meaning it retains the colour and quality when dyed, much more than cotton or linen.

Strong structure

Hemp doesn’t lose shape easily and having an elastic fibre, results in less creasing when compared to some other natural fibres.
