Known for its tensile strength, versatility and rapid growth, the hemp plant is primarily grown in Asia and the Mid-die East. Fibers from hemp's stalks can be harvested and processed to either become soft and lightweight or tough and durable, and finds many useful applications such as in apparel and footwear and more.
Often considered a weed, hemp grows easily in many regions and can become up to eight meters tall. It is naturally resistant to pests, fungi and diseases, which means that it requires minimal - if any - herbicides or pesticides to fend off the various enemies that many other natural fibers face. It also consumes minimal water (one third that of cotton) and essentially requires no fertilizers to grow.
Like other natural fibers, hemp additionally acts as a form of carbon sequestration, but combined with its durability and potential for a long lifespan this can result in a significantly lower total climate impact.
Soft and comfortable: Hemp fiber is one of the most Fine and soft fibers. Hemp fiber fineness is only one third of ramie, which is equivalent to cotton fiber. So don’t need special treatment that can avoid other hemp textiles tingling and having a rough feeling.
Breathe fabric: The cracks distributed on the surface of hemp fiber are connected with small holes, which makes it excellent in moisture absorption and sweat discharge. It is estimated that wearing hemp fabric, compared with cotton fabric, can reduce the body temperature by about 5 ℃.
Adsorption of carbon dioxide: Planting hemp contributes greatly to the balance of CO₂ content in the atmosphere. According to the French test method, one hectare of hemp can sequester and store 20 tons of CO₂ in the cellulose carbon and another 500 kg of CO₂ in the soil within one hundred days growth cycle.
Adsorbed heavy metal: Studies show that hemp has a good tolerance to heavy metal cadmium. In addition, hemp plant cells have the ability to avoid damage by heavy metal ions, which selectively concentrate in the roots of plants. Therefore, Chinese hemp is an excellent natural heavy metal adsorbent, which has an effective cleaning effect on water and soil.
Heat resistance: Hemp fiber also has excellent heat resistance. It can withstand a high temperature of 370 ℃, so it is especially suitable for sunblock clothing, sun umbrella, camping tent, work clothes with various special needs, and interior decoration fabrics.
Anti-static: The molecular structure of the hemp fiber is stable and the capacity to generate static electricity is very low. Therefore, the hemp textile will not cause discharge, dust adsorption, and pilling due to the clothing swing friction.
Adsorbed heavy metal: Studies show that hemp has good tolerance to heavy metal cadmium. In addition, hemp plant cells can avoid damage by heavy metal ions, which are selectively concentrate in the roots of plants. Therefore, Chinese hemp is an excellent natural heavy metal adsorbent, which has an effective cleaning effect on water and soil.
