Our Bio-Hemp comforter has just been awarded the "Austria Product of the Year 2019" prize from the ÖGVS (the Austrian Society for Consumer Studies) in the bedding products category. The testers were particularly impressed by the high warmth retention capacity and special environmental compatibility of the HEFEL Bio-Hemp comforters as well as their 100% vegan product properties - which also offer animal hair and dust mite allergy sufferers a genuine alternative to synthetic fillings.
With the launch of the Bio-Hemp comforters and pillows, HEFEL has expanded its high quality organic product range in 2019 to include this purely vegan alternative at an attractive price. HEFEL Bio-Hemp comforters consist of a filling of 70% hemp and 30% organic cotton (certified organic cultivation) and a 100% organic cotton fabric (certified organic cultivation) with GOTS certification. From the cultivation of the crops to the finished comforter, everything is 100% ecological.
The characteristics of hemp
Hemp is the warmest plant fibre thanks to its hollow fibres that trap air and its thermal properties lie between cotton and pure new wool. Particularly in the Alpine region, hemp (along with flax) has long been regarded as one of the most important fibre crops.
