At HFL, our goal is to educate people about the wonders of hemp and also reach out to sustainable brands and designers who share similar values of doing good for the planet.
Hemp fabric comes from the stalk of the Cannabis plant with below 0.3% THC that is legal for cultivation in Indian states like Uttarakhand, UP, MP, and countries like China and parts of Europe.
The fabric has a feel like cotton and looks a lot like linen. It is extremely durable as a material and sustainable as a plant since it requires no pesticides and very little water to grow giving 3x more yield than cotton per acre of land.
