Could Hemp be the Next Cotton?
Hemp has served the mankind over centuries and is a very eco-friendly crop.
When I design, my main focus is to use hemp fabrics as much as possible.
What does it feel like? Isn’t it rough?
What are the benefits?
Hemp fibres are durable, UV resistant, and mould resistant.
The crop requires no pesticides or herbicides, and little amount of water to grow.
Nothing is wasted in hemp farming.
Seeds are used to make oil and food supplements, and stalks are used for fabric fibre.
One acre of hemp can produce as much usable fibre as two acres of cotton.It is a great rotational crop.
Roots break up the hard soil preventing erosions, and enriching the soil at the same time.
