Why choose Hemp?

With lots of talk in the fashion industry about sustainablilty and transparancy within the fashion industry I thought I would highlight the use of Hemp in the latest Mama b collection.

Hemp clothing is a sustainable choice because it requires a relatively small amount of land to cultivate and uses very limited amounts of water for it's growth, therefore it has a low enviromental impact; in addition, the oils present in the plant are natural pesticides.

Hemp has some great qualities as a fabric, the best being it's very tenacious so will stand the test of time. It has good abrasion resistance but softens with every wash without fibre degradation and is 3 times stronger than cotton. It's soft, non itchy, antifungal and breathable.

We have 5 different styles of top from Mama b, the first being the cropped black 'Mirano cardigan', an essential in any wardrobe.
This Blue 'Forza Tunic' has a great stepped hem so it's longer at the back.

We also have an oversized style top 'Fora Pullover' which is 35" underarm to underarm. The wide style and open arms makes this a perfect choice for layering. Available in two shades of blue.

Our 4th style is a Mama b best seller, 'Kira Pullover' we have had this style for a few seasons so it's great to see it brought back in the hemp fabric. A wide boxy style with a full length sleeve. Ottilie is modelling the last style 'Lago Top' a 1/2 length sleeve in a darker blue shade.
