Why hemp?

We believe in growing hemp up, to draw down carbon
A sustainable crop

Hemp is a highly sustainable crop that requires minimal water, pesticides, and fertilisers compared to other traditional crops like cotton or corn. It grows quickly, helping to replenish the soil and reduce soil erosion. Choosing hemp is a choice for the planet. 

Adds value to wool

Hemp and wool both cooperate, and cover for each other. With a tensile strength 20x that of merino wool fibre, hemp can bring more durability to wool products. Wool still contributes its moisture management, and odour trapping qualities that make wool products so special - just made even better with hemp.

Versatility and usability

"Hemp can't possibly do all of that?". It really can! With total plant utilisation hemp is an incredibly versatile plant which can be used to produce various products, including textiles, paper, biodegradable plastics, construction materials, and even nutritious food items like hemp seeds and hemp oil.

We’re proud to have supported so many businesses on their journey to switch to natural materials.
The Te Ahu a Turanga Manawatu Tararua Highway project is proud to be using the wool/hemp geotextile fabric for our wetlands and treatment swales throughout the project. This product ticks a lot of boxes for the project, sustainably produced from local materials, manufactured right here in New Zealand and offers high performance as a geotextile for our landscape applications compared to the alternative options
