Hemp is extremely versatile, as it is also used in the food, building and cosmetic industries. Hemp is grown all around the world, a densely grown plant that wins the war on any competing plants. This means harsh chemical herbicides aren’t necessary. It requires little water and naturally fertilises the soil it grows in by returning 60-70% of the nutrients it borrows to grow. Hemp is one of the oldest fabrics in the world, and can be worn throughout the year, keeping you cool in the summer, and warm in the winter. It gets softer the more you wear and wash it making it a much-loved sustainable staple in your wardrobe.
