Original Canvas Sustainable NZ Hemp Apparel


The member of the Plant Based NZ whānau that clothes the rest of us. 

Original Canvas is a Christchurch based hemp apparel company utilising natural fibres to create basic ranges for everyone to enjoy. Original Canvas aim to make hemp accessible here in New Zealand, so everyone can experience its amazing qualities. 

Original Canvas utilises hemp fibre which coms from the stalk of the hemp crop, creating one of the strongest and most durable fibres of all natural textile fibres. Growing hemp in NZ for textiles is not yet an option. The OGC team took a trip to China to carefully select a hemp farm to cultivate, spin, and uniquely dye hemp fibres to create a top quality organic, natural textile.

With fashion being the second largest polluter, it is time for a change in the system. The environmental benefits of hemp make the hemp crop the perfect natural resource to combat this issue. Turning fast fashion into slow fashion, Original Canvas want to lead ourselves and others into a brighter future.


Hemp benefits both our people and our planet.
