  Background on Hemp
In the lush fields of the South Island, something extraordinary is happening. Hemp, a humble plant with extraordinary capabilities, is taking root. Grown in South Canterbury this wonder crop is not just any hemp—it's New Zealand hemp. Processed at Oceania's first hemp fibre processing facility, established in 2020, this homegrown treasure boasts unparalleled strength—about 20 times stronger than merino wool! But that's not all; it's a champion in the fight against climate change, locking up 1.6 times its weight in CO2e. Talk about a superhero in disguise!
  Embracing Sustainability, One Fibre at a Time
But here's where the magic truly unfolds. You see, we're not just growing hemp; we're nurturing a connection—a bond with the land, with nature, with our roots. We've made a conscious choice to grow hemp on the very same farms where we procure wool, creating a dual fibre supply chain that's as compact as it is sustainable. And the best part? Hemp's deep taproots not only allow it to access water from the depths of the earth but also preserve the precious topsoil, ensuring that our land remains fertile and vibrant for generations to come.
