Believe it or not Hemp has turned out to be a wonder fabric for interiors. Let me start off right away be saying that the Hemp that is used for getting high is not the same Hemp used for both clothing and interiors. For window treatments and drapes, it hangs beautifully soft, each pleat cascading gently over the next in deep round luscious folds. It's a very easy fabric to iron taking creases wherever needed and removing wrinkles just as easily. Because more economically prices slipcovers incorporate draping in one form or Hemp works well, looks beautiful.
Environmentally it leaves a smaller footprint requiring less water to grow and almost no pesticides, or defoliants. Hemp cloth is nearly 95% UV resistant, inherently mold resistant, heat resistant, and repels most anaerobic bacteria.
Hemp has gotten a bad name and therefore is not readily accepted by people. Little do they know that the Declaration of Independence was signed on Hemp paper, or that George Washington grew Hemp on his own plantations? Hemp is harder to process than cotton, and the degumming process can be very costly and time consuming. Manufactured almost exclusively in China and Eastern Europe. Hemp tends to be quite pricey compared to cottons. I have samples of the best Hemp cloth at the best price for your projects.
