According to L. Frank Baum, “There is no place like home”, and we couldn’t agree more! The home is your haven – a place where you forget life’s woes and let yourself be at peace.
However, what is it that makes four walls and a roof a home? What is it that instils life into your abode? Well, it is people, memories, love and also there’s home décor. The interiors of your home are the perfect reflection of your personality. Every little detail that goes into decorating your place defines your home and your character. So, it’s alright if you are choosy when looking for décor items to make your home feel like a warm embrace of a hug.
And to a lot of people’s amazement, hemp is a material rapidly climbing the ladder in the modern home décor world.
It may be difficult to comprehend home décor, home furnishing, and Hemp as something together. But believe it or not, people are actually choosing hemp fabric for their place. And why not? Hemp is biodegradable, requires less water, labour, and land as well as grows with no chemicals or pesticides and provides a better yield than other natural fabrics. In addition, it is resistant to mould and mildew with built-in UV protection. It is antibacterial and breathable, too, which keeps the fabric fresh.
So, this means using hemp fabric for your home décor will not only give your precious abode a nice feel but keep it safe and sustainable.
