Hemp fabric accredited into Material ConneXion’s library
We are pleased to announce our Hemp fabric has been accepted into prestigious Material ConneXion’s library of innovative materials.
Hemp is an innovative bast fibre upholstery fabric manufactured from a blend of 60% pure new wool and 40% harvested hemp. Available in 31 naturally inspired shades, Hemp is a totally renewable, compostable and sustainable fabric. We have ensured the supply chain integrity of this product by going direct to the start, growing our own hemp crops ready for blending with wool. The wool hemp yarn is blended and spun locally before weaving at our manufacturing facility. Finally the fabric is dyed using non-metallic dyestuffs. Hemp is inherently flame retardant without the requirement for FR chemicals, post treatments or backcoating, and comes with the backing of our 5 year manufacturer wear warranty.
Material ConneXion is made up of an international panel of creative professionals that use materials intelligence to help companies innovate. They provide a comprehensive overview of today’s innovative material solutions, and identify trends for particular industries. Their library contains over 7,000 innovative and sustainable materials and they have offices in New York, Bangkok, Beijing, Cologne, Daegu, Istanbul, Milan, Seoul and Shanghai, as well as a strong presence on the internet.
We are extremely proud our Hemp fabric has been recognised by the independent judging panel to achieve the environmental credentials required to be successfully accredited to the Material ConneXion Certificate of Excellence.
