Hemp jewelry

Hemp jewelry uses hemp twine material which is made from the Cannabis sativa plant, which is known as “Common Hemp”, which is used to produce such food, fuel, clothing and textiles, cosmetics, paints, paper, building materials, and plastics. , among others. Some types of jewelry include bracelets, necklaces, anklets, rings, watches, masks, purses, and other adornments. The jewelry can also make use of other materials, such as glass, wood, bones, rocks, or gems.


In 1937, growing political anti-feeling sentiment brought the Marijuana Tax Actbefore Congress where it was determined that no cannabis plant permit for cultivation. Many farmers and lobbyists objected to the fact that it would prevent the cultivation of the American market. Despite the objections, Congress passed the Marijuana Tax Act and it was signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on August 2, 1937. The industrial hemp industry in America was then crippled for many years. Despite the act, American farmers were allowed to grow up in 1942 during the US governments “Hemp for Victory” campaign. After the war hemp mills were shut down. Hemp then returned to oblivion while elsewhere in the world hemp production flourished until the 1970s when a resurgence of antidrug policies outlawed hemp cultivations in the UK,


Macrame is the ancient art form of knotting many different geometric patterns, with the use of hooks, needles, or hoops. This knotting can be used as a not only make-up, but decorative coverings and wall hangings as well. Materials used for this include natural fibers such as cotton, jute, sisal, linen, and other materials such as yarn, rayon, rattail, and nylon. Finally, they are processed into strands in which the fibers lay parallel to each other. [1]

History of macrame

The terminology “macrame” dates back to an Arabic origin and translates to ‘fringe’. [1] This skill originated in the 13th century when Arabian weavers would knot excess fabric at the edges of loomed fabric. It has become popular in the 14th and 15th centuries, and has become known to the world as “square knotting”, a fancy rope work. Sailors would describe the rope materials used by their circumference, however, nowadays size is given in diameter length. They typically used cotton, hemp or steel cord to ornament the ships rigging. The round braids, hitching and Turk’s head macramé styles were often used as protective wrappings for rails, spars and rigging. Mats were made from hemp and cotton to create nonskid surfaces on deck.

Macramé jewelry

There are many types of macrame knots. Macrame art also includes lacings and crossings. The square knot is considered the simplest knot and the half hitch, also known as the half knot, is the second most basic basic knot. These knots are typically used when hemp making hemp jewelry. The half knot produces a spiral cord and the full square knot produces a flat cord. Beads and other decorations are also weaved into the jewelry. Hemp is ideal for this jewelry because it is durable and keeps its shape well.

1993 to present

In 1993, the United Kingdom lifted its ban on hemp and in 1994 Canada granted the business Hempline a research grant à grow the crop. By 1995, hundreds of entrepreneurs in Canada, the UK, Germany, Austria, Australia and the United States started hemp companies. Then in 1996 the North American Industrial Hemp Council was founded by environmentalists, entrepreneurs, and representatives from industry, government, agriculture and academia. This is a strong commercial interest in hemp. By 1997, articles about industrial hemp regularly appeared in such publications as the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, and the Kiplinger Letter. Also in 1996 the Adidas shoe company released “The Hemp”, a model whose upper was made of hemp.
