Did you know hemp is among the earth's primary renewable resources? Yep! In fact, trees cut down to make paper can take fifty years to grow back while hemp can be cultivated in as little as one hundred days. Besides that, hemp produces three times as much fiber per acre as cotton. While cotton is grown on only 3% of the world's farmland, it takes a staggering 25% of the world's pesticide use per year.
As a fabric, hemp provides all the warmth and softness of a natural textile but with a superior durability. Think of an eco-friendly super fiber that is several times stronger than cotton thus more resistant to abrasion, tears, mildew, soiling, shrinkage and the deteriorating effects of the sun.
