Environmentally friendly hemp cultivation without chemicals:
The hemp plant is a soil improver and few-water consumer, whose roots reach up to 2m long in the ground and get their water need directly from the soil by itself.
Hemp plants are inherently resistant to insects and diseases, so cultivation requires no pesticide use. Herbicides against weeds are also unnecessary since hemp grows very fast.
Un-dyed hemps are genuine, clean natural products.
Special properties of hemp fibers:
Hemp fibers have the same micro-electric voltage as our skin, which is why hemps are particularly suitable for people with sensitive skin.
Hemp absorbs moisture very well and it also dispenses excellently.
Hemp has a temperature-balancing effect. The fiber warm well in winter and cool on the skin in summer.
Hemp has antibacterial properties.
