Create the perfect look for your dining table with these 100% natural Hemp fair trade placemats. Handmade from 100% wild hemp. Once the hemp plant has reached maturity, it is harvested by hand and then left in the sun to dry for 1-2 weeks depending on the weather. The stems and branches are then soaked in water for one week and sun dried again. Once it has dried out completely, it is bashed with a stick to fragment the fibre to allow it to split easily, then woven into place mats in our traditional hand loom.

Local Women’s Handicrafts is a fair trade textiles and handicrafts collective based in Kathmandu. All of our products are handmade and ethically produced, providing fair wages and safe working conditions for the local Nepalese women who make them. We seek to empower and educate disadvantaged women by providing them with training and skills to support themselves. 
Our organization is working hard to eradicate sweatshop problems as soon as possible. Everyday, lives are lost due to this unnecessary suffering.
By buying our products, you’re not just purchasing beautiful, handmade, and unique items, you’re also helping us educate women with skills that will allow them to support themselves and work in a happy and healthy environment.
