Especially in form of already woven fabric. I have a backbag that's made from industrial hemp and cotton. Is it allowed in Singapore? Is there a actual law source that could confirm this? All I can find is people who are confused about what (industrial) hemp is in the first place at tripadvisor and other sites.

For reference, the backbag is something like this (not the exact model): https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/497103-REG/National_Geographic_NG_5159_NG_5159_Earth_Explorer_Small.html

I mean this may seem a bit stupid but better safe than sorry I guess.


I can't provide a legal source, but I will point out that you will be fine as woven hemp products are commonly available for purchase in Singapore.

There's also nothing listed beyond cannabis (Cannabinol; Cannabinol derivatives; Cannabis and cannabis resin) in the reference document.

I wouldn't go out of my way to advertise the fact that it's hemp to avoid any misunderstandings though.

    This sounds correct to me. However note that your second link (shopee) actually ships from outside Singapore, so that one doesn't really prove anything. The other two links seem to be shipping from Singapore though. – drat Jan 29 at 9:44
