Welcome to Renaissance Fiber
Renaissance Fiber produces fiber from hemp, using inherently clean methods, for use in a wide range of industrial and manufacturing applications. Our primary focus is the generation of textile-quality fiber for yarn production. We are based in North Carolina and source raw materials from throughout the US. All of our products are 100% domestic.
We purchase raw, domestic hemp fiber and process it into forms suitable for textile production. We have relationships with farmers, yarn spinners and textile companies that produce brand-name garments and products. Our proprietary methods are clean, inexpensive, accessible, scalable, and developed to be air and water quality invisible. They use the unique geographic and climactic advantages of the US Southeast to produce high-quality, soft, spinnable fiber with small, efficient facilities. No bleaching or oxidation is needed, essentially doing away with the inherent production of potentially toxic by-products. With this proprietary technology, we hope to help our state & region maintain leadership in global agriculture and textile production.
For Growers and Industrial Hemp Processors
We offer fair prices for raw, unretted and/or decorticated hemp stalk & fiber (see our specs and grading scale below). Lightly retted stalk with no mold may be acceptable on a case by case basis. Hemp is accessible to most farmers with grain crop experience, but requires coordination to ensure high quality production and maximum value. It uses mostly standard equipment, though specific machines are required for decortication. We will work with you to establish proper growing conditions, go over what you need, identify suitable seed sources, and help locate specialized equipment. If you are interested in contracting with a buyer of hemp stalk, please contact us. We accept contracts in NC, SC, VA, KY and TN, and are happy to discuss options.
For first time growers, we recommend growing a small test plot of ½ acre or 1 acre to get a season under your belt. If you’re able to grow good fiber hemp, we would be happy to see it and possibly make purchase. Please contact your local agricultural extension office and refer to our Access to Seed page for details on hemp cultivation in your area.
