THE HOME OF HEMP BLAZING THE ECO TRAIL SINCE 1995
A hard wearing 100% pure Hemp fabric that is great for all your upholstery and interiors needs. With eco-sensitive oxygen bleaching it also looks stunning as a suit fabric.
"This is such an interesting weave and would bring interest to any project. The weight makes this fabric perfect for any pattern that requires a mid weight woven with structure - think jeans, jackets or patterns that require denim! The deep cream colour is lovely on its own or would add warmth to any shade you wish to dye it."- Vicky, Sewstainability.blog

This 100% hemp fabric is perfect for all of your interior design needs. The beautiful herringbone pattern looks great on cushions, chairs, curtains and bedding. Eco friendly & guilt free. If you're looking for a natural fabric that has a lot of character, and is 100% sustainable and ethical then this organic herringbone fabric is the choice for you! It's soft, supple, and it hangs/drapes beautifully for a midweight fabric.
This herringbone fabric is opaque, and is an excellent choice for clothing items such as jackets and trousers. Hemp fibres are highly absorbent, so this cream coloured fabric takes dye very well, just bear in mind that the creamy starting colour means that your colours will come out warmer than you might expect.
Hemp is renowned for being highly durable, and this organic fabric certainly lives up to hemp's reputation in that respect while still maintaining good levels of softness and comfort.
If you like the look of this fabric, you may also enjoy some of our other speciality weaves such as our organic corduroy fabric. If you're a hemp purist (we love you!), discover our entire selection of 100% hemp fabrics today.
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 per full metre length plus offers on 10m, 25m, 50m & 100m. For orders of 50m and above, please contact us for stock/delivery times.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Hemp’s hollow shafts mean it is breathable, and also insulating.
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.
Hemp doesn’t lose shape easily and having an elastic fibre, results in less creasing when compared to some other natural fibres.
