					With today’s trends towards organic and healthy lifestyles many people are changing their purchasing
choices to more organic items. At most times this is prominently seen in dietary changes, we also see this
phenomenon in other aspects of people’s lives as well. One of these aspects is clothing and a new trend we
see today is the rise in the use of hemp clothing.


Hemp clothing is made from Hemp fibre which is taken from the plants of the Cannabis family. Although
hemp clothing is called a recent trend, hemp clothing has a very far reaching history. Hemp clothing was
known to be used as far back as the Chinese in the 28th century B.C. Hemp clothing was the major part of
wearable products until the 1920’s. Till that time hemp clothing made up nearly 80% of the clothing
market. Hemp clothing has a very large range and includes jeans, shirts, dresses, hats, bags and many more.


Hemp can be easily grown in most fields alongside other crops and it requires almost no herbicides or
pesticides. The Chinese are currently the worlds largest producer of hemp clothing. The Chinese hemp[
clothing makers use a chemical process to create the fabric used in hemp clothing while their
contemporaries on the European Continent use cleaner biological enzyme technology to produce similar
fabrics for hemp clothing. The typical hemp fabric used for hemp clothing is not as white as cotton. It does
not have the same softness as the cotton fabrics do either. To manage this hemp clothing manufacturers used
a blend of cotton and hemp for hemp clothing. But now Canadian hemp clothing manufacturers have created
a process to make hemp fabrics into a soft and white product known as Crailar which is much more similar
to cotton and will be used in hemp clothing very soon.


Hemp clothing has many advantages over conventional clothing products. Hemp clothing is much stronger.
It has around three times the strength of similar cotton products. Hemp clothing is also more lightweight and
absorbent. Hemp clothing is also ideal for outdoor wear because of its resistance to ultraviolet radiation and
mold. And as mentioned before hemp clothing can be made of a blend of virtually any material and hemp.
Since hemp clothing is organic it is also healthy for the environment and for you too. This makes hemp
clothing some of the most versatile clothing ever seen.
