Hemp grows wild in Nepal, free of chemicals and nurtured with natural resources. By focusing on what is available locally, we help boost the local economy while teaching the people to be in harmony with nature. Hemp fiber is strong and durable and it's a very sustainable and environmentally friendly material.
We grow and harvest the plant locally and the entire process of growing, harvesting, weaving is done by hand. We use a 1000-year-old technique to turn that raw fiber into yarn and we woven it into fabric using a 100-year-old loom that doesn’t need any electricity. We then sew it either in its natural state and color or we hand dye it using natural dyes.
Hemp grows wild in Nepal, free of chemicals and nurtured with natural resources. Once the hemp plant has reached maturity, we harvest it by hand.
We left it in the sun to dry for 1-2 weeks depending on the weather.
We soak the stems and branches in water for one week and we sun dried them again.
Once it has dried out completely, we bashed it with a stick to fragment the fibers and allow it to split easily.
We spin the fiber into yarn using a 1000-year-old technique.
We weave it into fabric using a 100-year-old loom that doesn’t need any electricity.
We wash the fabric another 15 times before we sew it.
We dry the fabric in the sun before we use it.
We use it in its natural state or we hand dye it using natural dyes.
Handwoven Hemp Backpack
This book bag is gorgeous and durable. It is exactly what I was looking for. It is a "grown up" back pack in my opinion. It looks nice, and it supports a craft and economy for hard working women. I like that it is handmade and made well. I also love that in buying it I helped support someone's living, rather than some big company who exploits their workers. Thank you!
