Sustainable fabric for fashion and interiors by Bysshe Partnership
Bysshe fabrics are woven in Lancashire on Jacquard looms and finished in Yorkshire. They are woven with hemp weft across cotton warp yarns.
Our hemp, currently used as weft yarn, comes from Cornwall and Romania. The Cornish yarn was made from hemp grown in France by an international group of hemp activists and enthusiasts who are pioneers in the legal industrial hemp movement. For more refined fabrics we use hemp yarns from Romania, where hemp is part of their agricultural tradition and low impact farming techniques.
For the warp yarns we use GOTS certified organic cotton as we believe it is important to protect the environment, reduce agricultural dependency on the petrochemical industry and ensure the yarns have proof of origin.Organic cotton and hemp fabrics, made in England.
