Feel the Nature on Your Skin
The Hemp Line focuses on basics and underwear for men and women who want to be both fashionable and ecological. The philosophy of the label is that all beauty lies in nature. Only hemp or mixed hemp and organic cotton fabrics are used for the various collections. The naturally coarse, slightly irregular fibre structure of the robust and durable hemp fabrics makes The Hemp Line clothing unique and distinctive.
The hemp is grown in an environmentally friendly and naturally organic way. The plants are insensitive to insects and resistant to diseases, so no pesticides are needed. Hemp grows extremely fast, so herbicides against weeds are completely unnecessary. This provides considerable confidence that hemp clothing not only looks good, but is also natural in every respect.
Clothing made of hemp is skin-friendly and especially recommended for people with sensitive skin. Its antistatic, temperature-balancing, antibacterial and moisture-regulating properties make it comfortable to wear.
The planning and design of The Hemp Line collections, as well as the control of the textile production chain is done in Germany. The hemp fabrics and textiles are manufactured in China. The natural textile industry there is now very ecologically oriented – there is a very clear understanding of what is important to customers in Europe and the USA. Moreover, currently only China has a sufficient supply of raw materials (hemp fibres) for textile processing. Asian farmers have never stopped growing hemp and no other country in the world has reacted as quickly to the interest in hemp textiles as China.
The production facility is GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified and sets the highest standards for the ecological and social conditions of their production sites and have guaranteed us the following statements:
besides hemp, cotton from controlled organic cultivation is processed
- only materials that have been tested for harmful substances are used
- voluntary employment (no forced labour (ILO Conv. 29 & 105)
- no discrimination of any kind (ILO Conv. 100 & 111)
- no exploitative child labour (ILO Conv. 138)
- 20% higher wages compared to the average wage
- no excessive working hours
- humane working conditions
Clothing from The Hemp Line is therefore not only good for the people who wear it, but also ethically responsible and good for the environment.
