Cavvas - a short history

Cavvas has sprouted into life stemming from the need to carry the legacy of hemp in Romania. Its history served as an immense help and inspiration which we constantly strive to showcase and harness while turning it into exquisite natural products for our customers.

Just like hemp’s, our roots are anchored solid in the fertile soil that is devotion to client needs and to the many centuries of heritage and evolution.

We use a technology that already existed in the 80’s, which can still yield high-quality products, on par with modern processes. Instead of being a drawback, this actually helps us rely on a handmade quality level, and makes us stand out in the most positive way.

History of hemp in Romania.

Obtained from the bast of the plant Cannabis Sativa, hemp fiber is used for clothing and other household goods from the oldest times. Archeological evidence attests it from 7000 – 8000 B.C.

The plant was brought in Romania by the Scythians in the beginning of the 7th century B.C. Herodotus mentions that the ancestors of Romanians, Dacians, used the plant to heal wounds and burns, while Dacian women were highly skilled in using hemp to produce clothes and home decorations. Over time, hemp processing became the main activity of Romanian women, and many traditions derived from it.


In some regions in Romania, the old, traditional ways of growing and processing hemp within the household have remained unchanged up until the hemp plant was banded in 2005.

Nowadays, hemp can only be grown with special authorizations.

Its long history of hemp made Romania the biggest provider in Europe, growing about 70% of the entire European production, and the 4th in the world, with 45.000 ha of land cultivated with hemp up until 1989. Most of it is used for the production of high quality textiles for export.
