Hemp is one of the strongest natural fibers available. It feels nice, 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. Hemp is a so called bast fiber and is not very elastic. This causes a woven fabric to crinkle fairly quickly.
Origin of the material
The hemp was grown in North-China and processed there.
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.
