Hemp can be grown quickly, without chemicals, and with very little water, making it an ideal fiber to cultivate cheaply and organically even on marginal lands. Jute is one of the most affordable natural fibers and is second only to cotton in amount produced and variety of uses. Much like hemp, jute can be grown without the use of chemical fertilizers or irrigation and so is good for the land and is a profitable crop for farmers working marginal lands. Because jute is so inexpensive to grow, it is also an ideal fiber for Fair Trade initiatives.
