With a weight of 600 gr/m2 this 100% European Hemp Canvas is an excellent choice for upholstery, cushions and bags.
Because this canvas is a little less densely woven it has a more lively structure and it becomes easier to handle. The fabric was treated with a water repellent finish. The natural colour is obtained by the retting process, which also means that different batches can vary in colour. The yarn shows some irregularities in the thickness, which also adds to it's expressive quality.
From fibre to fabric this strong and durable canvas has been manufactered in Europe. Also available in piece dyed deeply saturated black.

Origin of the material
The hemp was grown in Europe and processed there. The European (Mediterranean) hemp is famous for its good fiber length and quality.
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.
