As well as selling a range of hemp clothes, bedding, and other goodies, The Hemp Company now sells a wide selection of Hemp Canvas. The canvas is naturally resistant to mould and ultraviolet light, and can be used for a variety of purposes, artist's canvas (unprimed), bags, shoes, furniture, etc.
"The word canvas describes the materials used to make the cloth, comes from the Arabic name for hemp: Cannabis. Prior to the use of linen and cotton the word canvas referred only to hemp cloth.".
