US HEMP FIBER

Hemp is actually the “sober cousin” of marijuana. It has a minimal amount of psychoactive components, and for that reason it is legal everywhere in the world. Our team has traveled across the United States, South America, Europe, and China to make sure that we can deliver locally utilizing national resources.

1. Harvesting hemp plants

Most plants used for hemp fabric are harvested with a specially developed machine. 

2. Retting

The fibers are separated from the bark and are then allowed to rett in the field for 4-6 weeks.

3. Carding into strands

The separated bast fibers are then carded into strands, and are cleaned to remove impurities.

4. Pulping, matting or steam

Manufacturers may use pulping to produce paper products, matting to make fleeces, or steam explosion to render raw hemp into a weavable fiber.

5. Weaving into textile

Hemp is ready to be spun into yarn and woven into textile.
