Many people think hemp is one of the premier plant fibers! All we know is, itís darn near perfect for making shower curtains! One of the strongest and most durable of all natural textile fibers, hemp also holds its shape, so it wonít stretch out or become distorted with use. And the more itís used the softer it gets! Hemp is also naturally resistant to mold and ultraviolet light. Purchasing goods made from hemp supports alternative agriculture too. Since it can't be legally grown in the USA, hemp products are pricey, but they're still a great value! With proper care hemp can last a lifetime . . . even when made into shower curtains!
