Hemp4Tex, supported by the Innovation Fund, will enable Danish agriculture and textile industry to produce sustainable textiles from Danish cultivated hemp.

Danish agriculture and textile industry must be presented with a fully developed concept for how to practically produce sustainable textiles from hemp, grown in Denmark. The aim is to develop a method that extends from cultivation, harvesting, processing and extraction of fibers, spinning as well as weaving and knitting of fabric. The project is supported by the Innovation Fund, and the purpose is to make hemp textiles a sustainable alternative to cotton textiles.
