Poplin from hemp and tencel

Light poplin from hemp and tencel with an ultrasoft touch
This light and plain woven chambray is made with an innovative blend of 55% hemp and 45% Tencel. The slight irregularities of the hemp fibre add to the visual effect of the different coloured yarns in warp and weft. The fabric drapes fluidly and is highly suitable for breathable summery shirts, dresses and accessories. Even as a lining fabric this harmonious blend will elevate the entire look of your garment. Also a favorite quality in interiors.

  • lively appearance
  • 100% biodegradable
  • highly absorbent and breathable

Wearing comfort
Hemp feels pleasant, can be worn directly on the skin, has good anti-bacterial and UV-resistant properties and is 100% biodegradable. Because it is a fiber that contains little air and has relatively little insulating properties, hemp always feels cool. Hemp has a high moisture-absorbing capacity and also easily releases the moisture to the outside air.
Tencel is soft, smooth and feels silk-like. It has good anti-bacterial and moisture-absorbing properties.

Origin of the material
The Tencel is produced by the Austrian enterprise Lenzing. The hemp is grown in China, where the fabric is also woven in a mill which is affiliated with the Fair Wear foundation and complies to al European standards for dyes and chemicals used in the production proces.

Ecology
Hemp is a relatively easy to grow plant, which has hardly any natural enemies and does not need much water. The plant is therefore cultivated almost everywhere without using herbicides or insecticides.
Tencel (lyocell) is a man-made fiber, made from pulped wood - mostly eucalyptus. Unlike viscose this is done in a closed loop system. Tencel is 100% biodegradable, made from renewable sources, and compared to cotton the water use is small.
