Wearing comfort
Hemp feels pleasant, can be worn directly on the skin, has good anti-bacterial and UV-resistant properties and is 100% biodegradable. Because it is a fiber that contains little air and has relatively little insulating properties, hemp always feels cool. Hemp has a high moisture-absorbing capacity and also easily releases the moisture to the outside air.
Cotton is soft, flexible, has good water absorbing properties and is very comfortable to the skin. Organic cotton is grown without the use of harmful pesticides or insecticides which makes it extra skin-friendly.

Origin of the material
The hemp is grown in China, where the fabric is also woven in a mill which is affiliated with the Fair Wear foundation and complies to all European standards for dyes and chemicals used in the production proces. The organic cotton comes from India.

Ecology
Hemp is a relatively easy to grow plant, which has hardly any natural enemies and does not need much water. The plant is therefore cultivated almost everywhere without using herbicides or insecticides.
Organic cotton is grown without the use of harmful pesticides or insecticides and without GMO. Organic agriculture takes care of the environment and truly represents the future.
Organic cotton and hemp have been blended in a high quality fabric that is both soft and luxurious and it will give you and your customers peace of mind when it comes to its environmental footprint.
