There are indications that in the 28th century B.C. in China, clothes were also made out of hemp fibres. The oldest, preserved textile is dated back to approx. 1000 B.C. In the 17th century at the pinnacle of sailing, hemp experienced its heyday in Europe. Into the 18th century hemp fibres together with flax, nettle und wool were the central raw materials of the European textile industry. For paper production, pulp was produced out of rags.
The decline of the hemp industry began in the 18th century and continued until the end of the 20th century. Hemp became nearly insignificant. The cotton spinning industrialization commenced a victorious, worldwide conquest for cotton textiles.
