Hempmade is a store that specializes in eco clothing and focuses mainly on hemp fiber. Hempmade was established in 2006 with the firm conviction that hemp is one of the most promising plants. Hemp has countless applications and is known for its tough character. Such, it can provide a solution to urgent world problems such as deforestation, famine and pollution of the soil and rivers. That is why we choose textiles manufactured partly or 100% from hemp.
In addition, hemp fibres are to four times stronger than classic cotton fibres and have a higher absorption capacity. Hemp clothing has the advantage that it can "breathe", this keeps you warm in the winter and ' cooler ' in the summer.
Hempmade works with partners who respect the same ecological and ethical values. We distribute products from different hemp producers from Europe and other continents.
The hemp production and processing often finds place in China, where it has grown for thousands of years already. However, this cultivation in Western society is gone. As a result, China has a huge lead in the cultivation and processing techniques of hemp, whereby it can call itself the market leader in the development of environmentally responsible textile based on natural fibers such as hemp, bamboo, flax, wool, organic cotton and soy.
