Embracing Ancient Wisdom for Modern Comfort: The Mesopotamian Roots of Hemp.

Was there hemp in early Histroy?

Imagine going back to ancient Mesopotamia. It was a cradle of civilization. It sat between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. Here, flourishing cities like Ur and Babylon were. There, an unassuming plant, hemp, began its journey to shape societies. Fast forward to today. This amazing plant is changing our lives. It's making sustainable, comfortable bed linen. Let's uncover how Mesopotamian wisdom is in every Jo Dope hemp bed sheet, pillowcase, and linen.

How was hemp used in early civilizations?

In Mesopotamia, hemp was not just a plant; it was a cornerstone of daily life. Ancient texts and finds suggest its use in making ropes and textiles. It may have been a medicinal herb. Exact statistics on hemp farming in Mesopotamia are scarce. But, historical evidence shows it was important in these early societies.
