Black Satin Hemp Silk - 55%H 45%S - 4.6oz
This is the fabric for you if you’re looking for something delicate and luxurious that works brilliantly for clothing projects that require something a little more refined. Despite its elegance, this material retains all the brilliantly durable properties of hemp, so you can make clothes to last. Our Satin Silk is matte on one side, with a beautiful sheen on the other.
As well as making stunning clothes like evening dresses (the white version of this fabric is one of our most popular sustainable wedding dress materials), we also love to use this material for creating beautiful upholstery and interior design elements that will transform any room, but the possibilities are only limited to your imagination!
As you can probably tell, we’re mad about hemp, and this Black Satin Silk fabric is 55% organic hemp. Hemp demands less water than alternative natural materials, and requires absolutely no pesticide, herbicide or chemical fertiliser in its production and is 100% biodegradable. It’s also a natural carbon sink, meaning that it is brilliant at capturing CO2 from the atmosphere and trapping it, and is able to grow in soil where other crops can’t, whilst leaving the earth better and more fertile than the day it was planted!
