Officials in Kazakhstan’s Almaty region recently agreed to assist domestic and US entrepreneurs in setting up in Taldykorgan a cannabis textile plant, whose products will be exported to China and Europe. Almaty region’s governor Amandyk Batalov has accepted a proposal to assist Elaxima Tech Style, along with US partners, to establish the facility.

Fibres made from technical cannabis are durable, of high quality and can be used in medicine, construction, furniture and garment and food manufacturing. Recycled cannabis can create a fabric as good as linen.

Batalov urged officials to help find a construction site with the infrastructure to support the production and shipment of the textiles. The issue of allocating irrigated lands would be addressed cooperatively by regional farmers, he noted.

Two years ago, the KazHemp company planted approximately 600 hectares with cannabis and have recently produced their first fabric, according to media reports from Kazakhstan.
