Please note that hemp is a natural product. Each item is handmade and therefore unique. The colour and shape of the item may differ slightly.
In the mountains of Nepal, hemp has been used for centuries because of its strength and durability. It is an indigenous plant which regenerates quickly after harvesting and requires little cultivation or mechanical processing. It is the ultimate environmentally friendly fabric. This naturally rewetted hemp (cured in water and not chemicals), is frequently blended with recycled silk and/or recycled wool to create uniquely colourful, multi-dimensional products. Natural vegetable dyes are used in the production of our colourful all hemp fabric products.
Most of the hemp bags on this site are produced in Kathmandu Nepal by Women's Cooperative groups. Weavers and members of these organizations receive a fair wage and additional benefits such as bonuses, paid leave, medical benefits, and retirement plans. These Cooperatives have improved the quality of life by providing employment for socially and economically disadvantaged women.
