Hemp Horizon launches a sustainable brand
With innovation at the core of the fashion industry, new fabric technologies and creative concepts are giving sustainable, eco-friendly fashion renewed momentum. Enter Hemp Horizon. Working to the belief that awareness is key, our new brand of hand made fashions combine luxury, style, comfort and conscience.
A range of versatile basics to suit any occasion, Hemp Horizon’s new lines will first and foremost feel good to wear. Blended with fine sustainable silk, organic eco-friendly cotton, bamboo and other fibres, Hemp is fashioned into luxuriously soft, elegant and comfortable garments.
Hemp is fast growing, requires little water and no pesticides or herbicides. Water consumpion is a big deal for the fashion industry: it apparently takes 20,000 litres to make a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. With predictions that demand will outstrip supply by 40% as early as 2030, awareness is key.
Hemp Horizon’s hemp fusion clothes are hand made in the UK, with complete control over quality and finish. With UV resistant and antibacterial qualities, Hemp is the perfect choice to wear next to your skin. Plus it will soften with age and each wash to become that much-loved wardrobe staple.
Fashion’s sustainable future
Eco fashion is fast proving to be a future trend rather than a fashion fad . Conservation charity WWF Finland and the Nordic fashion industry joined up this year to launch ‘The New Normal’ project. Their aim is to create desirable clothes with little impact on the environment. Big fashion names such as Stella McCartney already put sustainability at the forefront of their brands. While retail giants like H&M and Nike are sourcing recycled or sustainable materials, or mico-engineering their own.
Bringing awareness to our wardrobe, Hemp Horizon offers an easy way to make more sustainable shopping decisions. Head over to our shop page to start your shopping basket.
