We spent the week in Miami at the IDEA22 show- The World’s Preeminent Event for Nonwovens and Technical Fabrics. We’re happy to announce we are teaming up with Hempitecture. The coordinated supply chain partnership for the production and manufacture of natural hemp fibers for Hempitecture’s nonwoven Hempwool insulation to be grown, processed and manufactured in the western United States. We are coordinating genetics, agronomy and contracting production acres of industrial hemp fiber in Montana, Oregon, Washington and now Idaho. The company is the ‘supply’ in supply chain performing ‘first touch’ decortication processing- the initial separation of raw materials direct from the farm to produce a consistent supply of raw hemp bast fiber at scale. Hempitecture has market proven their Hempwool insulation product, branded as ‘the most sustainable, high performing insulation material on the planet’ for the past few years and is currently in construction of the factory that will make the nonwoven airlaid insulation product in Jerome, Idaho.
“Hempitecture’s partnership with IND HEMP represents more than just a critical supply chain solution. It represents the restoration of American manufacturing, the empowerment of rural economies and forward thinking innovation in sustainable materials. We look forward to innovating the building products of the future with IND HEMP’s processed hemp fiber” shares Hempitecture Co-Founder and CEO Mattie Mead.
We are dedicated to supporting rural economies and providing sustainable solutions to industry. We are excited about Hempitecture’s products and use of natural fiber in construction materials. This continues to showcase how IND HEMP’s products and sustainability benefits can be adopted successfully across a wide range of applications.
