The Natural Color of Hemp Fabric
Have you ordered hemp fabrics over a long period of time and notice there can be a variation from batch to batch?
The reason for that is, most the fabrics we offer come in a natural greige state. In other words, the fabrics have not been dyed in any way.
So depending on the sourced hemp fibers there can be some variation in the color output.
Fresh off the loom, when hemp fabric is just done being made it’s usually a taupe color of varying shades of grey and tan. Almost like a khaki color of sorts.
We can get lighter shades of natural hemp fabrics by soaking the hemp fabrics in Hydrogen Peroxide.
Peroxide can brighten up the fibers without damaging them. It’s safe and clean for both humans and the environment as it breaks down into water and oxygen.
