China-hemp is an ancient plant, which is known as "king of natural fibers". Clothing and other products made from China hemp have many functions like moisture-absorption, breathable, heat-disperse, antibacterial, anti-radiation, anti-ultraviolet, and sound-absorption and is suitable for both military and civilian applications.

The excellent properties of China hemp is expected to bring about revolutionary changes in uniforms for soldiers in the future. Considering the properties of China hemp, it can be processed into a variety of military apparel and high-end apparel materials.

China hemp is a multi-purpose plant that is eco-friendly and renewable and turns into a white colour fibre like cotton after the process of de-gumming and spinning and then the fibre can be blended with wool or cotton at a low cost.

Researchers who have conducted an in-depth study of the plant say that it is a wonderful plant, which when converted in to fibre and then fabric has a moisture-absorption rate three times that of cotton and can kill bacteria attached to the fabric within one hour.

Other then the above mentioned properties, China hemp fabric can shield more than 95 percent of ultraviolet rays and does not fade even at 370 degrees Centigrade and does not also burn at 1000 degrees along with having excellent heat resistance and anti-UV properties.
