Hemp up your look and feel This hemp t-shirt is nothing like what you have worn before. While you cannot tell the difference by looking at it or touching it because it resembles cotton, it is a kind of garment that comes with many special qualities. Love the planet To begin with, it is the most planet-friendly fibre there is. Unlike cotton, which is a water-intensive crop and takes longer to reach harvest age, hemp is a fast growing plant that requires very little water and no herbicides. It is the true clean and green material. It is a responsible choice in today’s world. Tough as nails From a garment point of view, it is very resilient and longer lasting than cotton. Even after repeated washes it retains its amazing tensile strength. Which means this t-shirt won’t de-shape easily. This quality gives the t-shirt unparalleled durability. The longevity of hemp fabric is also enhanced by its ability to resist wear and tear due to ultraviolet (UV) light. Did you know? Hemp fabric’s ruggedness and comfort were utilised by Levi Strauss, the inventor of denim, as a lightweight duck canvas for the very first pair of jeans made in California. Kills germs A research by the Association for Professionals in Infection Control & Epidemiology has found that hemp fabrics actually kill bacteria, including MRSA – a drug-resistant bacteria also known as staph. The test showed that hemp material actually killed the staph bacteria at an incredible rate – it was found 98.5% bacteria free upon the first measurement. Similarly, the innate quality of the hemp plant is such that it does not encourage fungal growth at all, keeping the garment crisp and fresh. Because of this it is a healthier choice as it means when you wear it, you are protected from these dangerous germs. Personal aircon system Due to the fabric’s unique make up, it has the best ratio of heat capacity among all other fibres. It simply means the insulation you get is superb – it keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter. Pest controlled Since hemp, as a plant itself, is not attractive to pests, the fibre manufactured from hemp is also pest resistant. It means that if you keep your t-shirt in a closet for a long time, it will not have holes and tears induced by common household pests. A fabric to dye for Compared to other fabrics, hemp merges with dyes far more easily. It does not discolour easily. The colours stay true and bright even after multiple washes over long periods of time. Body love Finally, the breathability of hemp has to be experienced to be understood. It feels light on you as the fabric lets air in even better than cotton. In short, this t-shirt will become your second skin and the Earth will thank you for it. Hemp is fashion’s way of saying “we care”.
