Industrial Hemp Fibre
Hemp is a fibrous plant similar to flax, kenaf, jute and ramie. Hemp textile fibres are multicellular like other fibrous materials. They are located in the cortical tissue of the stem and envelop the main layer of xylem.
Hemp fabric is a sustainable textile made from the high yielding fibres of the hemp sativa plant family.
The textile fibre is one of the most valuable parts of the hemp plant. It is commonly called bast, which refers to the fibres that grow on the outside of the plant stem. Mast fibres provide plants with strength.
Depending on the processing used on the fibre from the stem, hemp can naturally be creamy white, brown, grey, black or green in colour.
