A thoroughly Italian story.

Up until the middle of the 19th century, hemp was one of Italy’ principal crops. Its history has long been intertwined with that of the land around Bergamo where it was grown.

Bolstered by its history and the methods handed down through generations for the processing of hemp, in 2017 Linificio e Canapificio Nazionale reintroduced this fibre, focusing on its natural sustainability and wealth.
