Canalia, your technical, environmental and sustainable textile fibers.

Our history

A story of men and determination

In the early days, less than a hundred enthusiastic hemp growers cultivated 400 hectares. Back then, in the 1960s, they delivered their hemp straw to their only customer, a pulp mill called SA des Papeteries BOLLORÉ based in Troyes.

This is how it all began. Come and discover our history.
