On the same patch of land, you could grow some cotton or… 250 times more hemp! The latter is nowhere near as thirsty when it comes to irrigation, too.
These are just some of the reasons why there are more and more hemp clothing brands sprouting within the slow fashion industry.
Why choose hemp fabric?
Hemp is literally one of the most sustainable fabrics. So, when choosing hemp clothing produced by an ethical brand, you’re reducing the environmental footprint of your wardrobe.
As well as the land and water usage issues, hemp is hardy and resilient: as such, it doesn’t require pesticides. It’s also one of the fastest growing plants, helps regenerate its soil, and is biodegradable (unlike polyester and other synthetic options).
Now, let’s help you find the right hemp clothing for your style and ethos!
