Ten thousand years ago hemp changed the course of history. Humans found a single plant which could provide food, fuel, and fiber. From the bark of this True Hemp plant comes Cantiva®. Hemp nearly vanished with the advent of man-made fibers. Cantiva combines nature with technology to re-introduce hemp as the fiber for the 21st century.
Cantiva hemp does not require pesticides to grow, and is converted into textile raw material without the use of toxic chemicals. With Cantiva processing, hemp, traditionally used for sails and rope, can now be made into durable, breathable, and functional apparel and furnishings.
Cantiva means respect for the Earth and all living beings. Enjoy products made from Cantiva and join a sustainable fiber tradition, two hundred generations strong.
