Le chanvre textile : Une solution écologique et confortable

Textile hemp: An ecological and comfortable revolution

History and Origin

Textile hemp has a fascinating history. The oldest clothing fabrics found, dating from 4000 BC, come from China. This long tradition testifies to the sustainability and historical importance of hemp in textile manufacturing.

Manufacturing process

Processing hemp into textile begins with spinning, where the fibers are disentangled, aligned and spun. The metric number (NM) determines the thickness of the yarn, influencing the texture and appearance of the final product. The yarns are then knitted or woven to obtain fabrics with elastic and durable properties, ideal for clothing such as t-shirts and socks. Finally, treatments such as bleaching, dyeing and finishing produce aesthetic and comfortable hemp textiles.

Properties and Benefits

Hemp is appreciated for its many qualities. It is elastic, hypoallergenic, and improves over time, becoming softer after each wash. Its UV resistance and ability to dry quickly make it ideal for summer wear. Additionally, its exceptional moisture management and antibacterial properties make it a healthy and comfortable choice for everyday use.

Sustainability and Ecology

Hemp is the most ecological material on the market. It consumes very little water, does not need pesticides, and helps regenerate soil. A hemp plantation absorbs as much CO2 as a forest of the same size, thus contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gases. Today, France is the leading producer of hemp, supporting a sustainable and responsible textile industry.
