The hemp plant, also called cannabis or marijuana, has been used around the world for thousands of years. Sometime around 7000 - 8000 BCE, the first fabric is believed to have been woven from dried hemp weed

It is impossible to provide a specific date since remnants of stone age, man-made fabrics have been found. They were made from plant and animal materials and were made for protection from the elements.

Recent genetic studies of clothing lice indicate that clothing has been worn for hundreds of thousands of years.
