This pure 100% organic Hemp fabric is a classic Hessian or Burlap fabric. Hessian, or burlap in the North Americas, is a loosely woven fabric which has been historically produced as a coarse fabric, but more recently it is being used in a refined state as an ecofriendly material for bags, rugs, and other products.

The name "hessian" is attributed to the use of the fabric, initially, as part of the uniform of soldiers from the German state of Hesse, who were called "Hessians."

The fabric colour is an eco-sensitive un-bleached natural. The fibers are spun, milled, woven, dyed and finished without toxic chemicals and without using huge amounts of fresh water. This mill produces the Hemp fabrics from organic yarn, which, although not certified, is grown/cultivated, produced and spun, organically.

Priced per full metre length up to 9m plus offers on 10m, 25m, 50m & 100m. For orders of 50m and above, please contact us for stock/delivery times.

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

Please check the fabric for any faults, imperfections or marks, as we are unable to accept returns of washed or cut fabric.


We offer a range Eco Reactive Dyes which can be easily used in your washing machine at home.

Our Romanian fabrics are made from hemp fibres that have been mechanically processed with a chemical-free, environmentally-sound technology. This natural processing preserves the innate integrity of hemp fibre with its long molecular structure and inherent strength and durability. It is accomplished with a series of increasingly fine mechanical combings done in two stages known as scutching and hackling, the traditional methods used for hemp processing in Eastern Europe.
