What colour? A hard choice
Hemp is a type of fabric derived from the stem of Cannabis sativa L, a cannabis species that produces a sturdy and resilient material. Compared to other plant stem fabrics, such as linen, jute, flax, and bamboo, hemp is particularly durable and long-lasting.
As a completely natural and biodegradable material, hemp is an excellent eco-friendly alternative to non-biodegradable synthetic fibers. In fact, hemp is widely considered to be the more sustainable option for large-scale production compared to cotton. It requires minimal water to grow and is a high-yield crop, producing more fibers per area than other plants.
Additionally, hemp can thrive in less fertile soil, freeing up more nutrient-rich ground for other crops. According to a 2020 study, 1 hectare of hemp can yield the same amount of fabric as 2 to 3 hectares of cotton, while using significantly less water.
The backpack features two layers of waterproof protection:
1. A coating that repels liquids and dis from coming in
2. A membrane that keeps water out no mater what.
