Panda Biotech, an industrial hemp pioneer, and Oritain, a scientific traceability firm, have announced a partnership to produce the world's first fully traceable hemp fiber, as the fashion industry continues to look for more sustainable options.
Panda Biotech will manufacture premium, textile-grade, cottonized natural hemp fiber for industrial and consumer applications in response to changing regulations in the United States, a global trend back to natural materials, and a larger demand for green alternatives to synthetics. The company's first plant will open in Wichita Falls, Texas, in mid-2022.
This latest collaboration with Oritain will see the two businesses collaborate as formal partners to develop the world's first scientifically traceable hemp fiber for the global textile industry, from field to garment.
Growing attention to the environmental and societal effect of clothes and the fashion industry as a whole has resulted in a revived interest in natural raw materials, which can help solve some of the industry's sustainability issues. Hemp is a very flexible substance that consumes considerably less energy than other fibers and is totally biodegradable. However, like with any sustainable substance, misleading claims about where and how industrial hemp was produced, farmed, and processed may frequently detract from its benefits.
However, like with any sustainable substance, misleading claims about where and how industrial hemp was produced, farmed, and processed may frequently detract from its benefits. Panda Biotech can ensure its brand partners and consumers that every hemp fiber processed in Texas is authentic US hemp cultivated by US farmers thanks to a relationship with scientific traceability business Oritain.
Panda Biotech is building what is thought to be the world's largest hemp facility and is substantially investing in a greener future. Panda can help the industry and consumers dress more ethically by collaborating with Oritain to safeguard and promote that future.
