User Benefits of Hemp Fabric:
Hemp is the number one biomass producer – 10 tons in approximately 90 – 120 days.
One acre of hemp will produce 2 to 3 times more fiber than one acre of cotton and as much paper as 2–4 acres of trees. Hemp clothing costs more than cotton clothing but will last six times as long- making it cheaper in the long run. Used hemp clothing can be recycled.
