Sustainable Clothing: Hemp-Based Shirts for All Weather

Posted by Ahmet Levent Gobuluk on

Levant’s Naturals shirts are produced of hemp based fabric handwoven at looms in northern Turkey by the Black Sea region. These natural fabrics are made using traditional methods used for centuries.


Clothing made of hemp based textile has been increasingly popular in the past couple of years due to hemp fabric’s many qualities. Let’s talk about features that make this sustainable material the distinguished super fabric.


Hemp fabric is extremely versatile, it is stronger and more durable than any other natural fabric, including linen. Aside from its durability, hemp’s comfort and style are second to none.


This special lightweight fabric is breathable. Due to its porous nature, it feels cooler in hot weather. Yet during cool weather, air trapped in the fibers is warmed by the body, making it naturally warm.


It can absorb up to 20% of its own weight while still feeling dry to the touch, which means it dries quickly.


The more hemp is used, the softer it gets: it wears in, not out, thriving on regular use and machine washing without suffering fabric degradation. 


Hemp has a high resistance to ultraviolet light; it will not fade or disintegrate from sunlight as quickly as other natural fibers.


Finally, any product made of hemp is fully biodegradable and easily recyclable. Since hemp can be cultivated in as little as 100 days, it is a renewable resource for fashion. Thus, hemp fabric is also eco-friendly. 


So, if you want to contribute to mother nature by being part of sustainable fashion movement, we highly recommend that you try clothes made of hemp based fabric.
