Hemp Textiles in Britain

Hemp Textiles in Britain | More info on textiles for further reading | Scoop.it

Hemp (Cannabis sativa) could be an important crop enabling the production of environmentally-friendly, locally produced, high quality textiles. Hemp is a traditional fibre crop which for centuries was important in meeting our needs for textiles, paper and oils. It is easy to grow organically, that is, without a need for artificial pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers, so it can make an important contribution to a sustainable future. Currently the bulk of our demand for textiles is met by cotton and synthetics, both of which have serious environmental problems associated with them.
The once major hemp textile industry has now completely disappeared from the western world. At Bioregional Development Group we have been investigating the potential for reviving hemp and flax cultivation and integrated processing to produce textiles, paper, particleboard and oils on a sustainable basis in our bioregion, The Weald of Surrey, Kent and Sussex in Southern England

 

Recourses are finite & one day there wont be any oil .......... so where then do we go for our 'fashion' ?
