4 compelling reasons to buy a hemp backpack
1. It’s incredibly strong
Fun fact: the word ‘canvas’ actually derives it’s name from the word ‘cannabis’. This can be pointed to it’s origins, when hemp canvas would be used in the sails of ships that moved across ocean to discover new continents.
Unlike it’s cotton counterpart, hemp won’t wear out as quickly. Instead hemp will soften over time.
You’ll be able to get a feel of when a hemp backpack is wearing out based on how soft it feels, without the surprise of the backpack suddenly ripping.
You can chill out on a lazy weekend at the park, using your hemp backpack as a makeshift pillow. By the same token, you can load it up with your laptop, cameras or books and head to class / work.
