Hemp

VivaShiva Hemp

Hemp use dates back to the Stone Age and is one of the earliest domesticated plants known. Long before the Industrial Revolution it was grown and used widely, especially owing to its strength and rapid growth rate.

It is a natural, non-toxic, soft but durable fibre with excellent moisture absorption. The fibre, seed and oil are used for food, clothing, fuel, paper, rope, fishing bait and even hemp plastic… The list is endless

During World War II Hemp was promoted as a necessary crop to win the war. Hence HEMP for Victory!

Now legally known in the European Union as “True Hemp”, 100% Natural Hemp is a truly earth-friendly plant.

Once regarded as an oldskool hippy fabric, hemp clothing now finally thanks to planetary necessity, education and creative design is fast becoming highly fashionable and desirable.

Hemp fibres retain and maintain dyes and colours wonderfully and have the additional benefit of keeping you cool in the summer and warmer in winter. It’s an environmental and economic wonder… Love Hemp!
