What is Hemp and is it sustainable? Why we love it at ADKN

A very resilient and easy-to-grow plant, hemp can renew up to 3 times per year whilst using 3 times less water than cotton, making it the most sustainable plant for fabrics. Very similar to linen in texture, our hemp is very light and soft, but 10 times stronger than cotton or linen. It holds its shape, resists fading, is resistant to UV rays and is very durable. Perfect for those timeless pieces you'll want to wear for years to come. No pesticides or chemicals are used in the processes of producing our hemp, making the material natural and hypoallergenic, perfect for sensitive skin. It is also very breathable and has excellent insulation properties, keeping you cool when it's hot and warming you up when it's cold. A completely natural material, hemp is entirely biodegradable, leaving a very minimal footprint behind. We use a variety of hemp blends (mixed with organic cotton or recycled polyester), to give the softest and most luxurious feel to our garments. Our hemp is GOTS and Oeko Tex Standard 100 certified and we source it only from certified non-greenwashing mills.
