The History of Hemp
prAna uses hemp fiber that comes from the Industrial hemp plant. The environmental benefits that are associated with hemp come from the growing attributes of the plant. Industrial hemp is virtually drought resistant, has the ability to grow in various types of conditions, and no herbicides or pesticides are required. Without the need for irrigation, and pesticides or fertilizers, hemp’s impact is very minimal. Enjoy this video on the history of hemp and modern apparel uses from the hemp documentary filmmakers who brought us “Bringing It Home“.
