STYLE / Keep Cool in Hemp

Hemp is said to be one of the most sustainable fibres in the world and has been used in textiles since Roman times.

Style benefits: Modern techniques can now produce hemp fibre and yarn that are soft and dye well, allowing it to be better used in more stylish, colourful and contemporary clothing. With time and wear it grows softer, yet is strong and long-lasting. As a natural fibre, hemp is perfectly breathable for these warmer days.

Sustainable benefits: Hemp is said to be six times as strong as cotton and more weather-resistant. It grows easily with little water, four times less than non-organic cotton. It usually requires no chemical fertilisers and pesticides, naturally maturing very quickly and with a high yield. It also blocks out weeds as it grows and returns up to 70% of nutrients to the soil. One hectare can absorb 15 tonnes of CO2.

Here are some of our instore hemp favourites:

The Erin Jumpsuit

I fell in love with how timeless this jumpsuit is but also the subtle knot detail to the straps which elevates the style and makes the neckline beautifully flattering.

The Isobel collection

Gorgeous cullottes, an incredibly easily to wear dress plus wheat and lavender bags created from upcycling their offcuts. Absolutely perfect! The stripe detail makes this a unique and contemporary design whilst the neutral shade words with a number of other pieces and accessories. Pair with the Betta or a white top from our Loved Linen range.
