Thermoregulatory, resistant and antibacterial, but above all environmentally friendly: it is the hemp fiber
Hemp fiber is gaining ground on the green fabric market: it is super ecological, environmentally friendly and has many properties that make it exceptional for our clothing as well. Let's see together why.
Hemp fiber: a rediscovered treasure
Flava Amato, of Malìa Lab, a company that produces hemp garments, adds: “Hemp is an ancient fabric, just think that traces and finds of hemp fiber fabrics have been found, dating back to 10,000 years ago. It is therefore not a modern fabric, rather a rediscovered fabric, which in recent years has found an ever-increasing use in the fashion sector. The new hemp maceration and processing technologies ensure that the textile fiber produced is softer than the ancient one and brighter ”.
Hemp fiber: ecological
As Carlotta of Lizé Natural Clothing, who in her collection has several garments made of this material, told us, hemp fiber really has many properties. It does not need pesticides to grow, because it is very resistant and is even pesticide. This means that many plants can grow together on small surfaces, with great savings in resources, even in terms of space. It even releases nitrogen into the soil, so it makes it cultivable for several years in a row without depleting it, as other types of crops do.
Hemp fiber: durable
But that's not all: hemp has thermoregulatory properties that make it similar to wool, so it keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter. Since its fiber is hollow, it absorbs moisture. It is also rough and raw, but, as it is washed and used, it softens more and more and is regenerated simply by exposing it to the open air, regaining its natural vigor. In short, it is indestructible and respects both the planet and our body.
