The complete (100%!) fabric material of ECOHEMP cables consists of a braid of special hemp fibers. This natural raw material has been used for the production of fabrics for thousands of years and that is why we also rely on this sustainable alternative to the otherwise customary textile jacketing.
In doing so, we have observed the strictest standards: Our textile jacket has been granted the prestigious GOTS certificate (Global Organic Textile Standard) *(TRANSACTION CERTIFICATE NUMBER ICEA TC GOTS 2022 80775 3179). This means that environmental requirements as well as social standards are met along the entire production chain and that only organically produced natural fibers are used.
Some decisive factors for the optimal use of instrument cables in a musician's daily routine are, of course, a high degree of flexibility and good windability. To ensure that this requirement is also met as regards the fabric jacket, the machines used are operated in the so-called "low-speed process" mode during braiding, i.e. particularly slowly, so that an exceptionally elastic and resilient braid is produced.
