Hemp saves Water! Hemp uses only 1/20th the amount of water as regular cotton to grow and process.
Hemp wears in, not out. Hemp’s tensile strength is up to eight times that of cotton.
Breathable & Soft
Soft on the skin. Contrary to stereotypes, hemp fabric is luxuriously soft, and becoming softer and more comfortable over time.
Naturally moisture-wicking & odour resistant
Hemp can absorb up to 20% of its weight while still feeling dry to the touch. This is important for fabrics in contact with our skin, as sweat is quickly absorbed and released. This means less moisture is retained, and less odor-causing bacteria.
Resistant to UV light
Hemp is the most resistant natural fiber to ultraviolet light, offering protection from the sun’s rays.
