The use of hemp can be traced back to 8000 BC in the Middle East and China where the fiber was used for textiles, ropes, and fishnets.
Hemp fibers are one of the longest natural soft fibers, with eight times the tensile strength of cotton and four times the durability. They are also more absorbent, more mildew-resistant, and better insulating than cotton.
This sustainable super-plant grows very quickly (around 100 days), and is great for the environment - detoxifying the soil by removing harmful chemicals and pollutants, and enriches the soil with nitrogen and oxygen.
On the contrary, cotton takes a tremendous toll on the soil and the cotton industry is currently responsible for more than 10% of the world’s pesticides and nearly 25% of the world’s insecticides. Cotton is one of the most thirsty crops and is depleting our limited freshwater sources. Hemp on the other hand, will produce around 2-3 times as much fiber per acre compared to cotton, and requries only around a 1/5th of the water.
Hemp textile breathes very well, offers UV protection, is naturally anti-bacterial…and gets better with age!
Did you know?
King Henry VIII made a law declaring that land-owners in Britain had to set aside at least one quarter of an acre out of every 60 acres to cultivate hemp in order to make more rope, sails, nets and other naval equipment.
Hemp textile is also hypoallergenic and non-irritating to the skin, so with all that being said... keep an eye out for the Raised Spirit hemp clothing range which is currently under developement!
