Why hemp? Hemp grows very fast in any type of climate without exhausting the soil. It naturally doesn’t require much water or the use of pesticides or herbicides, so organic methods are inherent in its production. Hemp is known as one of the strongest fibers there is; also for its absorbency, high heat conductivity, and abrasion resistance. Plus, the more hemp is washed, the softer it gets. All of this makes hemp an excellent choice for heirloom-quality products like Beautiful Ingredient table linens.
Why organic cotton? By choosing organic cotton over conventional, we are choosing nontoxic, sustainable processes. While cotton production generally relies heavily on agro-chemicals that can end up polluting and threatening the health of farmers, water systems, soil, etc., there are no such chemicals used in the making of organic cotton, which goes through the organic certification and inspection processes regularly to ensure standards are met.
Why recycled? The recycled fibers in the fabrics we use would be destined for landfills if they weren’t “rescued” as unused cuttings from organic cotton/hemp mills and sewing factories. By recycling instead, the unique and beautiful “heathered" appearance is achieved.
