  1. A lot of chemicals being dumped, how can we claim its sustainable and how can it be superior to cotton, which doesn't have to go through this level of processing. I am sure its superior to other man made fabrics like nylon. Hope there is an eco-friendly way of doing it! Hempcrete rocks though!

  2. so hemp clothes in Australia is FAR from a natural product. Can't these people do the job without the chemicals? This video demonstration is disgusting, but thanks for letting us know!

  3. It is amazing how you can use this single plant to build an entire carbon-negative home. Insulation is better, hempcrete is better, and it all uses less carbon to produce/build.

  4. Hey there, I went to visit your page and found it no longer to be active? Have you guys gone out of business? I would hate to learn this as we need more people in this industry, regardless of what country! All our synthetic products are just shameful given what mother nature can and does provide us!!!

  5. the dying process looks a bit complicated, there are quite a few chemicals added, are they all synthetic or natural, anybody know what they are?
    The end product those looks workable. I'd like to have a mental representation of how much plants you need to process to make say a large gargbage bag.
    How tough do materials made out of hemp come out?
    it looks like a good building material, weird we humans haven't made much good use of it

  6. Thanks for posting this. I had no idea how a stock plant is turned into a fibre that is workable for material process. It would be great to see how the next step works, from fibre to material. Just doing quick math, this production equipment can make enough dollars for a crew of four, and the growing costs? It seems that the output per pound would be hard to turn a profit. Can you share any additional info? Thanks from Canada

  7. This was useful… for a few minutes. Then the music and explanations stopped. Maybe you should make a new video. But thanks anyway!

  8. you state that you use chemicals in your process but you are unwilling to disclose what they are ? That is suspicious, especially when manufacturing an earth friendly, and growingly heath conscious product for the world.

  9. I love hearing about the many successes and uses of hemp. We should be growing more of it worldwide, instead of using that awful stuff we call plastics.

  10. Thank you for your comment.
    I always love to hear about people interested in Hemp.

    A static version of our machine is currently worth about $500,000 Australian which would be able to handle your 100 acres.

    The rest of the process is a little more complicated and i don't think i can even take a guess at the cost.

    If your really interested though. Feel free to contact us at our website which is in the description of the video.

    Good luck and warms regards

  11. no sound hmmm oh well I am so curious about what the start up cost for the machinery …just like a ball park…this is part of a three part goal of mine…To own at least 100 acres of Hemp and have processing to create fabrics and including making patterns and so on to the market to sell my designs ..thanks for your input this is a true goal of mine.

  12. I'm sorry but i can not disclose the exact chemicals we use because they are a trade secret. Although there are no allergy warnings for the chemicals we use.
    I hope this has answered your question.
    If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to ask.
    Regards
    Oliver
