A hemp stalk is composed of rigid fiber bundles held together by natural glues called lignins that allow the fibers to grow long and strong. In woven materials, this translates to high tensile strength and durability.
Broken in Right off the Shelf
As a textile, hemp has natural drape and high breathability without sacrificing durability and abrasion resistance. Ready-to-wear comfort from day one.
For centuries, hemp has been a trusted go-to for rigging rope, ship sails and can-do canvas.
Hemp’s long center taproot deeply penetrates even the hardest, nutrient-depleted ground to pull up soil-regenerating nutrients and microbes.
Hemp thrives with little to no irrigation—a money saver and a soil saver.
Grows Like a Weed
Hemp requires no synthetic fertilizer and less natural fertilizer than other crops. Because it grows quickly and creates its own canopy shade, it naturally keeps weeds to a minimum.
