History

The company Colour Connection, originally active as a fair trade company, merged with the company Hanfzeit in 1999 to form HempAge AG. Ecological textiles, fairly produced and distributed, became the basic message. Above all there was a desire to regain the standing of Hemp material, which had been neglected in the past decades.

A long path began starting with hand woven and plant-dyed Hemp from Thailand, through industrial production in Romania, to the excellent quality we have reached today with our Chinese partners.

Our commitment is not only limited to the development and marketing of textiles, but also includes research work in the areas of extraction and refinement of fibres. In addition we work together with European committees dedicated to disseminating Hemp into other fields such as insulation material or fibre composites. In 2012, HempAge founded a research organization to establish a concrete remedy for the technological shortage in the processing of Hemp.
