Hemp is a fabric that we’ve seen a rise in within the fashion industry the past few years. Many brands that sport the sustainable shtick are using hemp in their comfortable t-shirts, baggy lounge dresses, and some pretty darn fashionable pants. Hemp is great for a place like Mumbai, where the weather is warm and hot year round. What we know about hemp is that it’s a fabric that is one of Planet Earth’s most sustainable natural fibres. But, why? Here are reasons why you should buy hemp clothing and why Seams For Dreams loves it so much!
- It’s easily breathable and keeps you feeling dry no matter how much you sweat!
Yes, it’s true! This light fabric will keep you feeling dry during your morning commute in the warmest of climates!
- It requires little pesticides or water to grow abundantly.
Fabrics like hemp have little impact on our environment. It grows quickly and doesn’t require that much land to farm. Shop away!
- It’s great for our personal health too!
The anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties in hemp make sure that things like mould and mildew don’t get in our way of healthy living.
- It lasts longer than your average cotton t-shirt.
Hemp holds its form for a long time. It’ll even get softer as you wash it more, retaining the colour and shape as it ages.
- Many brands in India are following suit.
Because hemp is legal in India (don’t worry, it has no psychoactive components like its cousin marijuana), many brands are using hemp in their beauty and fashion products. Look out for our next post where we list out brands where you can shop for this beautiful clothing!
Keep giving in style!
