The bag made of Korean hemp fiber is perfect as a bread bag. When you put the bread in a plastic bag the bread crust becomes soft and doughy, whereas hemp fiber keeps it crunchy, thanks to its inherent moisture-wicking property. Its antibacterial function also inhibits the growth of mold. This breathable bag can be multi-use to store vegetables, fruits, rice, or grains without having to worry about them rotting whether in the kitchen or the refrigerator as well. And don’t forget to use it as a produce bag while going to the supermarket, thereby reducing plastic bags’ numbers.

Hemp Fiber

Sambe is a Korean hemp fiber made by using fibers from the stalks of the Cannabis Sativa plant. As one of the most natural fibers, hemp fibers have been used historically in Koreans’ everyday life. The sustainability is initiated since the stage of growing – hemp requires very few or no chemical fertilizers or artificial pesticides and significantly less water and land compared to cotton. It also releases fewer toxic substances into the soil and the wider ecosystem. Hemp is also considered to be a carbon-negative raw material, which means that it absorbs more carbon than it produces. Aside from the environment-friendly cultivation, this vegan fiber has the following inherent beneficial characteristics.

 

Durable and Long-lasting

The fibers of hemp are long and sturdy, hemp fabric has the highest durability and strength among natural fibers. Hemp fabric is known to be about three times tougher than cotton. Since this plant-based fiber is not susceptible to shrinkage, it retains its shape over a long time and does not wear out easily, making it practically ideal for household textiles.

 

High Absorbency

Hemp fiber has a low density compared with artificial fibers. Due to the unique structure of the fiber, it absorbs and discharges moisture quickly, hence its high popularity for use in towels. In addition, hemp fabric is lightweight and highly breathable.

 

Odor-free

Hemp is effective in preventing the growth of various bacteria that cause unpleasant odors. Its inherent antibacterial function is retained even after boiling or washing.

 

Antibacterial and Anti-toxic

This ecologically sound fiber is antibacterial and anti-toxic. The antibacterial standard of hemp yarn is 3.9 or higher, while the certification mark SEK given by The Japan Textile Evaluation Technology Council is eligible for products with a value over 2.2.

 

UV-blocking

Natural hemp fibers are known to have superior UV protection properties compared to synthetic fibers. The 100% hemp fibers have a UV blocking rate of 92% and an electromagnetic wave blocking rate of 86%. That makes hemp material less prone to fading than cotton.

 

Biodegradable

When hemp fiber is disposed of, it is biodegradable with a limited negative environmental impact.
