This backpack is the result of the environmental benefits of hemp cultivation combined with its durable characteristics as a fabric.
Hemp constitutes a highly sustainable, low-impact crop that can be converted into fabric sustainably. As environmental problems are piling up high around us, so does the need to become increasingly aware of our choices.
We are promoting SLOW FASHION: good, clean and fair
Good - Hemp ethically harvested in the hilly and mountainous regions of the Himalayas. Hemp returns 60-70% of the nutrients it takes from the soil and it requires very little water.
Clean - Chemicals and pesticides free and natural dye. The converting process uses a quarter of the water used for cotton and it can produce up to double the fibre yield per hectare than cotton. Made by hand & traditional hand operating devices.
Fair - We collaborate with a local charity and our artisans are local villagers from different social and economic backgrounds which created women empowering the community that promotes the development of new skills, education and health-care for them and their children.
