Origin of the materialEcology
The fibers from which this fine white hemp yarn were sourced in China where the hemp was also degummed, spun and finished.
Hemp is a relatively easy to grow plant, which has hardly any natural enemies and does not need much water. The plant is therefore cultivated almost everywhere in the world without using herbicides or insecticides. The Asiatic hemp varieties are smaller than the European but also grow very fast, so that weeds do not get the chance tot develop.
