Hemp is the new cotton

Natural Fiber Natural Fiber

We are a Lithuanian company, which specialises in growing and processing of raw hemp material to produce high-quality hemp fiber and yarn of European origin for global textiles and fashion industries.

Our special feature is a high quality hemp fiber specifically dedicated for the 21st century sustainability-driven textiles and fashion industries.

In 2019, we have completed the construction of a modern hemp fiber processing plant, with investment amounting to more than 8 million euro. The plant of Natural Fiber (UAB “Natūralus Pluoštas“) is located in Lithuania, Europe – a geographical area which offers excellent conditions for growing and retting hemp. The hemp stalks are processed at the plant to obtain high quality hemp fiber for textiles and nonwovens, while the residual materials - shives and pellets - can be used in various branches of the industrial sector.

The company is the largest manufacturer of hemp fiber in the Baltics and manages the full cultivation and processing cycle of top-quality hemp fiber for high quality textiles. We guarantee the traceability of our products by working closely with every farm where our hemp is grown and the people who grow it. We also guarantee the quality of our hemp fibers as we are in control of the entire process: from the selection of seeds, their preparation, growing and retting to harvesting and processing.

Our vision - To make sustainable hemp fiber one of the main natural fibers used in 21st century sustainability-driven textiles and fashion industries.

Our mission - To restore and stimulate the use of hemp fiber in textiles and fashion industries as a high-quality, sustainable, environmentally-friendly material, while simultaneously upholding the long-standing cultivation tradition of hemp in the Baltics, Europe.
