History of Hemp clothing!

Strong Natural Fibre

The Hemp is the first plant grown by humans for religious purposes and dates back to 6000 BC. Hemp is a highly sustainable fiber with a backdrop of the Cannabis Sativa family. It is a plant that grows like a weed and eliminates harmful pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and usually requires less water than most crops. Hemp fabric absorbs carbon dioxide and relives nutrients back into the soil.

Hence, it can only be cultivated for industrial purposes like food, shelter, and clothing. 

Let’s Get Into its Origin

It happened that, the archeologists found parts of hemp cloth in Iraq, woven around 8000 BC.

The Europeans were aware of this material in 1,200 BC  that has led to its fast spread in the continent. Even the Chinese knew about Hemp clothing and its uses as when we look at it from a microscope, the legendary Chinese emperor Shen Nung taught his citizens to cultivate Cannabis sativa and to weave clothing out of it in 2700 BC.

Today, the country has the longest history of hemp cultivation in around 6000 years.

How Was it Made?

Hemp fabric is 62% more durable than cotton. 

Firstly, it undergoes traditional processing that includes water-retting where the fiber is separated from the core by hand using special crushing and brush rollers.  Later, the fiber is spun and woven into a piece of organic clothing.
