The organic European hemp difference. We grow, process, and make our organic hemp clothing in Europe (instead of China) for purity & environmental sustainability. Our organic cotton clothing is grown and made in USA, Europe, & Canada. Sweatshop-free.
Eat our undies! Our organic underwear is so pure you could eat them (if you were really hungry!). Our organic cotton, linen, & hemp products are sweatshop-free, chemical-free, & organic as can be. No PVC, no BPA, no formadehyde, no bleach. Pretty neat, eh?
Our Hemp Shower Curtains are great as walk-through-closet & full-length hemp curtains, too! Hemp curtains are eco-friendly & insulate well, saving you money on heating. The hemp shower curtain (10 ounce canvas) is the same as our hemp curtain, except the hemp curtain is also available both in 10 oz and 6 oz weights and both the 72" length and the longer 86" length.

Keep off wet floors and stretched out on rod at all times to prevent moisture buildup. Keep bathroom well-ventilated. Machine wash with like colors -- warm water, linen/delicate setting. Best to hang to dry. 1/2 cup of borax or 1/4 cup of distilled white vinegar can be added to the wash to prevent/cure mildew. Hang dry. While our hemp shower curtains are designed to be used without a liner, if you wish to keep your hemp shower curtain in new condition, a zero-VOC or low-VOC liner is recommended. Chances are, if you get mildew on your hemp shower curtain, you would also get it on plastic or organic cotton shower curtains too. Fresh air is the best safeguard against fungus.
Since 2000, we have been making 100% hemp shower curtains which are an environmentally friendly alternative to toxic vinyl shower curtains.
Our Hemp Shower Curtain is made from 100% organic European hemp (10 oz. hemp canvas). No chemicals or heavy metals were used in production. Perfect as room dividers and wall & window curtains, too.
Featuring macrame rings with wooden button. Button hole (metal-free). Fiber-reactive dyes. Sweatshop-free. No dioxin. No formaldehyde. No PVC. No BPA.
Can be used with high-quality liner (no VOC or low VOC) for longer product life. If used without a liner, product will wear out over time (like clothing).
Need a taller curtain? No problem. Just double up on the hemp macramé rings to attain the final height you want. Each set of rings adds 4"–6" to the overall height of the hemp shower curtain (this trick comes in handy when using the shower curtain as a full-length curtain on French or doors or floor-to-ceiling windows
How are your hemp shower curtains different?
They're unique to us and made from organically grown European hemp (not conventional Chinese hemp, which may have issues with chemical growing and processing). There are many different grades and qualities of hemp fabric out there. For our hemp shower curtain, we have selected the highest quality organic raw hemp fibers to weave into a custom fabric with the perfect weight, resulting in a gorgeous hemp canvas that is strong yet light enough to dry quickly between use. We do not use heavy metals or harsh chemicals in the production of our non-PVC organic hemp shower curtains.
"Each year, 275 million pounds of pesticides are used on the conventional cotton crop alone, not to mention millions and millions more pounds of chemicals that are used to process the cotton fiber and manufacture conventional cotton products. And bad as conventional cotton is, synthetic fibers (nylon, micro fiber, etc..) are even worse! Hemp, on the other hand, grows easily without chemicals or pesticides in virtually any climate and soil. The hemp fiber is easily processed with just water and machine combing and is also at least three times stronger than the cotton fiber.
Our natural fiber shower curtains are made in Europe, where the hemp is grown (not China, which may have issues with sweatshop labor). Unlike most bamboo shower curtains, which have gone through chemical treatments and processing to get from hard bamboo plants to soft fiber, our hemp shower curtains are as natural, pure & sustainable as can be.
What's so bad about vinyl shower curtains & Bamboo Shower Curtain?
According to the Center for Health, Environment, and Justice (which recommended removing vinyl shower curtains from store shelves in 2009), PVC shower curtains outgas 108 different chemicals within the first 28 days of use and continue to do so for a very long time: that "new" smell is the telltale sign of all those chemicals going into your lungs and skin when you are most vulnerable: while taking a hot shower and breathing deeply. It's bad enough having to deal with chlorine and possible lead and mercury contamination in municipal water; the last thing you'd want to add to your list of daily exposure to chemicals is PVC-anything. PVC has been associated with many serious human ailments. Even conservative organizations have started to caution people against vinyl / PVC products.
There are two particularly harmful and unavoidable by-products of PVC: Dioxin and PCBs. Dioxin is created during all phases of PVC production, as well as in its disposal by incineration or accidental fire. There is no "threshold" dose for dioxin. For dioxin, the lowest dose that causes hormonal action has not been found yet. It currently stands at about 1 part per trillion, but researchers have been unable to find the threshold using the most up-to-date advanced systems. It is thought to be the most toxic human-made chemical.
We quote from the study: "Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic shower curtains purchased at Bed Bath & Beyond, Kmart, Sears, Target, and Wal-Mart all contain avoidable toxic chemicals including volatile organic compounds (VOCs), phthalates, organotins and metals. Some of these chemicals are volatile, so they are released into the air inside our homes... Some of these chemicals cause developmental damage as well as damage to the liver and central nervous, respiratory, and reproductive systems. This investigation shows that PVC shower curtains are significant contributors to indoor air pollution."
News: The Federal Trade Commission in the US and the Competition Bureau in Canada have begun to file charges against manufacturers of bamboo fiber products for making false claims. "The US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) this week charged four sellers of clothing and other textile products with deceptively labeling and advertising these items as made of bamboo fiber, when they are made of rayon." And in Canada: "Identification of man-made fibres must conform to a list of generic fibres. Under the Textile Labeling Act and Regulations "bamboo" is not listed as a generic fibre name, and as a result it is not legal to identify the fibre content on a label as "bamboo". Because of the processing involved, "rayon" must be used."
