Future Fashion: Why I’m wearing Hemp

Recently, I added some fabulous Hemp pieces to my wardrobe, and let me tell you, the moment I slipped into these clothes, I felt an immediate shift. The texture, the comfort, and the undeniable vibe—it's like wearing a piece of the future.


Benefits of Hemp Over Cotton and Synthetics:

1. Sustainability: Hemp is a low-impact crop, requiring minimal water and no pesticides. Its cultivation enriches the soil, making it a friend to Mother Earth.

2. Durability: Hemp fibers are known for their strength, making your clothes last longer. It's an investment in both style and sustainability.

3. Breathability: Hemp fabric is naturally breathable, keeping you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It's a win-win for comfort and style.

4. Health: Hemp is hypoallergenic and UV resistant, making it a healthier choice for your skin.

 

BUT, HERE IS THE BIG BUT.


Hemp is more sustainable than any other plant fabric because we can use all parts of the plant for various purposes so it is a completely waste free material.



1. Stalks/Fiber:

       Hemp Fiber: The outer fibers, known as bast fibers, are extracted from the stalks. These fibers are strong, durable, and used to produce textiles, ropes, and other products.

       Hurd or Shives: The inner woody core of the stalk, known as hurd or shives, can be processed to create building materials, such as hempcrete, a sustainable alternative to traditional concrete.

2. Seeds:

      Hemp Seeds: Hemp seeds are rich in nutrition and can be eaten raw, roasted, or ground into hempseed oil. They are a source of protein, healthy fats (omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids), and various vitamins and minerals. Hemp seeds are often incorporated into salads, smoothies, and other culinary creations.

3. Leaves:

       Hemp Leaves: While less commonly utilized than other parts, hemp leaves can be used for nutritional purposes. Some people include hemp leaves in salads, juices, or smoothies.

4. Flowers:

        Hemp Flowers: The flowers of the hemp plant contain cannabinoids, including cannabidiol (CBD). These compounds have gained attention for their potential therapeutic properties. Hemp flowers can be used to extract CBD oil, which is used in various wellness products.

5. Roots:

        Hemp Roots: Hemp roots have been used traditionally in herbal medicine. They contain compounds that may have anti-inflammatory properties. However, the use of hemp roots is less common compared to other parts of the plant.

 

Utilizing all parts of the hemp plant aligns with the principles of sustainability and minimal waste.
