Hemp canvas from Ecological Textiles

Hemp is one of the oldest and also one of the most durable textile fibres. The plant has few natural ennemies and grows so fast that weeds hardly have a chance. As a result, hardly any insecticides or herbicides are used in the cultivation of the plant. In addition, hemp consumes little water, stores a lot of CO2 and it is an enormously versatile plant from which many things are made. Hemp is grown organically everywhere, even if this is not always reflected in certifications.

Hemp is one of the strongest plant fibers. In addition, it has an exceptional look and feel. Hemp yarns, and therefore also hemp fabrics, always show small irregularities that give the material its special character.

In this section we present both European and Chinese hemp canvas. European hemp varieties are considered to be superior by many experts but the reality we are dealing with is that the technology to process hemp into textiles has all but disappeared from Europe. This concerns agricultural machines but especially spinning mills and weaving mills. In China there is both more hemp cultivation and a larger hemp processing industry.

Ecological Textiles, as a European company, is a staunch supporter of European textile production. That is one of the reasons why we are a member of the European Industrial Hemp Association (EIHA). In our newsletter and via social media we regularly post about the activities that are being developed around the hemp theme.
