As the popularity of cannabis grows, so does that of the hemp plant. Hemp is a variety of the cannabis sativa plant, which has various industrial applications, including as a construction material. Hemp is a highly sustainable crop that can nourish the soil without the need of pesticides. The plant’s stalk has low levels of THC and is fibrous. Its fabric, which is not only durable, long lasting and efficient, is soft and comfortable on the skin.
You can find bedding items such as blankets, duvets and bedsheets, as well as tablecloths and clothes, including skirts, pants, jackets and dresses made from hemp. Below are some benefits of hemp fabric.
Softens with time
As mentioned above, clothes made from hemp are comfortable to wear and, with every wash, they get softer. The clothes also don’t get distorted after multiple washes and uses.
Features antimicrobial properties
Unlike other fabrics such as polyester and cotton, hemp fabric fights against bacteria such as those that cause body odor. Hemp fabric is also resistant to mildew and mold.
In addition to being easy on the skin, the fabric is breathable and easily absorbs sweat. Hemp fabric is also resistant to fading and is easy to dye.
Good for soil health
Hemp can be grown in almost any soil and it helps restore some of the important nutrients that may have been lost in that soil. Hemp cultivators can plant hemp as part of crop rotation as well as grow multiple cycles of the plant on the same parcel of land. The plant is also pest resistant, and it doesn’t require fertilizers because its leaves provide enough to the soil when they shed. In addition, hemp is biodegradable
Doesn’t require large amounts of water
Hemp can thrive even without a lot of water, unlike other plants such as cotton, which need lots hydration. The infrequent use of chemicals for hemp cultivation also helps avoid soil erosion, which in turn spares water bodies from pollution.
Good for the environment
Almost every industry globally has a carbon footprint, including the fashion industry, which is a huge contributor to environmental and global-warming issues. Adopting hemp clothing to replace fast fashion will help absorb more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere as well as combat other climate issues.
As seen above, hemp is the crop that can almost do it all. Given its applications not only in the fashion industry but other industries as well, it makes sense to use hemp, both for a better environment and a better world.
The increasing awareness of the ecobenefits of hemp clothing has resulted in the hemp clothing made by companies such as Flora Growth Corp. (NASDAQ: FLGC) to skyrocket in popularity among consumers who are concerned about the carbon footprint of the fabrics they wear.
