How hemp fabric is processed in Nepal?
Basically, hemp fabric is made-up from the long strands (20ft.) of the Cannabis plant. They are first harvested and then leaves are shredded. Now, we run a process called ‘retting’, which means hemp bark fiber is soaked in water to soften it and separate the fibers. Later, this separated fiber are spun together to produce a strong and continuous thread which can be woven into an organic hemp yarn.
History of Hemp Fabric
The scientific name for hemp is ‘Cannabis Sativa’, which is the fastest growing plant in the earth. This plant was first spun in fiber before 10000 years ago and refined to produce commercial products.
Some of the few commercial products made from hemp fabric are Food, Bio-degradable plastics, Clothing, Paper, Shoes, Water and soil purification and Biofuels.
The raw hemp fiber has two most important components which are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). The balanced mixture of these two elements will decrease the effect of psychoactive.
Hence, a hemp backpack produced in Nepal is free from THC and eco-friendly.
