Hello and Welcome to Hemp Sisters...
Thank you for taking the time to visit
our site and explore our offerings. We greatly appreciate your interest in
hemp and your support of the hemp industry. With your help and support we
can and will continue to increase awareness of the many benefits and uses of
hemp and sustainable natural fiber products.
Most of our hats and bags 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.
Women's Cooperatives are members of Fair Trade producer groups under contract
with Hemp Sisters to produce an exquist array of unique hats, bags, wallets,
scarves, shawls, slippers and other items designed by Hemp Sisters. Read more about Fair Trade and Hemp Sisters' Products here.
Recycled Silk and Recycled Yarn products are made by gathering waste pieces
of silk and wool thread from the cutting room floors of commerical producers
in India. These scraps that would otherwise be burned or landfilled are then
transported back to Nepal where they are re-spun and then sewn, knit or crocheted
into scarves, shawls, hats, bags and gloves.
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 enviornmentally friendly fabric. This naturally rehetted
hemp (cured in water and not chemicals), is frequently blended with recycled
silk and/or recycled wool to create uniquely colorful, multi-dimensional
products. Natural vegetable dyes are used in the production of our colorful
all hemp fabric products.
