Hemp, insulating and breathable padding
Cannabis Sativa is a plant that is grown mostly in temperate climate areas of Central Asia, America and also in some areas of Europe. The plant can reach heights of up to 5 meters and is grown for uses in the construction industry, in the production of paper and in the textile sector.
For millennia it has been cultivated in the Middle East and Asia for the subsequent construction of ropes in the naval sector. Also in Italy it boasts a long tradition of use in the naval sector with the construction of both ropes and sails for war fleets, as well as in domestic use in tablecloths and bed accessories.
The textile fiber of hemp is obtained from the fibrous component of the stem called "linden". The fibers are hollow and hygroscopic and the combination of its properties makes it perfectly heat-insulating and breathable, capable of keeping cool in summer and warm in winter.
It is also one of the most resistant fibers in nature, both to wear and tear and to deformation. It is a fiber that does not conduct static electricity and does not irritate the skin as it is hypoallergenic and capable of keeping bacteria away.
