Introducing hemp blend fabrics – a sustainable alternative to traditional fashion industry fabrics
Company Natural Fiber (UAB ‚Natūralus Pluoštas‘) is delighted to present its‘ collaboration with company UAB ‚Omniteksas‘ in producing a wide selection of natural colour and coloured fabrics from our sustainable hemp fiber that is originaly grown in Lithuania, the Baltics. Natural Fiber OEKO-TEX ® Standard 100 certified hemp fiber is blended with a variety of fibers, including recycled polyester, polyester, organic cotton.
Fabrics from hemp fiber are distinguished by its’ superb quality, air permeability and softness. Hemp blend with recycled polyester/polyester offers strong, wrinkle and tear-resistant, breathable and good moisture-managing knitwear. Addition of organic cotton into the material creates the range of products that are soft to touch, comfortable, and are of particularly good breathability and flexibility. Clothing produced from hemp blends fabrics can be used for both: fashion and leisure clothing products.
The use of natural and sustainable hemp fiber in blends with organic cotton and polyester is a substantial benefit for the soil, eco-system, well-being of industry workers and consumers. Growing and processing of hemp do not involve the use of pesticides and other chemicals; hemp products are easily recyclable and help to reduce waste and greenhouse gas emissions. It significantly reduces the amounts of other less sustainable materials used in today’s textile industry and is a way of improving the fashion industry’s sustainability stance. Finally, the above-mentioned fabric qualities guarantee comfort and well-being of consumers. By choosing hemp fabric blends consumers are making a healthy and sustainable choice for themselves and the environment.
