About Us old

Hello! Im Danielle, the founder of Hemp & Hope. I took an eye-opening backpacking trip around India and Nepal. I was blown away by the breath-taking sunsets, architecture and culture; But for the first time in my sheltered life, I was confronted with extreme poverty and polluted streets. I had a huge wakeup call as I realised the role, I had to play in all of this. The choices I made when buying clothing directly impacted people's lives. By buying into 'fast fashion', I contributed to a cycle of poverty, dangerous working conditions and waste. After seeing this first-hand, I decided I had to make a change, and so the idea for Hemp & Hope was born!
We met with suppliers in Nepal who made beautiful bags from sustainable Hemp fibre. We visited their factory and made sure they were working fairly and in a safe environment. We bought a small package of backpacks, and upon returning home, I set up a new business!
We design all of our bags and clothing here in Scotland, UK and have them made by our wonderful makers in Nepal. Our hemp is harvested and spun by women in Baglung and Bajura Villages in the Himalayan mountains. It is then sent to Kathmandu and Pokhara to be made into our garments.
We want to be much more than just a brand! We refuse to contribute to the problem and have sworn to be a part of the solution. Thank you for joining us on this slow fashion journey!

I get so many compliments on this top!

I recently purchased the sustainable hemp wrap top and I am absolutely thrilled with my purchase! The material is soft, comfortable, and breathable, and I love that it is made from sustainable hemp. The wrap style is very flattering and the top is perfect for dressing up or down. The fit is true to size and the top is well made, with no loose threads or imperfections. I have received so many compliments on this top and I have recommended it to all of my friends. I will definitely be purchasing more sustainable hemp items in the future. Thank you for creating such a high-quality, environmentally-friendly product!

Love it

I was a little skeptical about hemp clothing at first, but this jumpsuit has completely changed my mind. It's surprisingly soft and comfortable, and I can wear it all day without any discomfort.

Love this item

Love the design and sizing. A great item

Thin material & not a good fit

I own the original jumpsuit which is amazing, wear it all the time. I fed back that the only thing missing was pockets, they took that on board (I wasn’t the only person to say) and redesigned with pockets. Finally got round to getting a second jumpsuit and it’s changed completely, thin material, the sizing has changed so it’s too short in the body and the cut really exaggerates when I get bloat. I’d been really confident in loving this so had already disposed of the packaging etc or I’d be returning it. I did message the founder but didn’t hear back. I still love Hemp and Hope and will continue to shop with them, just really disappointed in this jumpsuit now.

Lovely quality.

The rucksack is a nice shade of dark red, easy to wear and use and great quality. Quick delivery. Great value for money.

Stunning bag

Very sturdy and can easily fit laptop :)

Absolutely gorgeous!

I got these after having the burgundy yangra jumpsuit for almost a year and I am so glad I did! They are aboslutely gorgeous! A slightly thinner fabric than the burgundy ones but that makes them super versatile! The sizing is great, I got a size 8 after using my top measurements and they fit perfectly! Thank you so much! Absolutely love this shop :)

Love it

My granddaughter has this shirt and I loved it , she sent me all the details and link , I did ask her if she would mind me having one and she said absolutely not , so I sent for it , quick and efficient, thank you

I’m in love!

This absolutely beautiful bag comes with me everywhere. It fits my camera perfectly and i love the earthy fall colors. I get lots of compliments about it as well :) Really happy with it!

Perfect!

I was so happy to find that this pencil case fit my 134 colouring pencil set, along with my compass, various pens, and a few small things like sharpener etc. It’s hard to find a case that is big enough for a 130+ set while still looking pretty. I’m over the moon with the general quality of it & the colour fits my decor to perfection. I bought the red makeup bag. I would say it’s red with a “wine” tint in reality. Purply red. I was so chuffed that it’s eco-friendly and amazing to plant some trees in the process too :)

Love this shop

One of my favourite small businesses. Have a few items will buy again

So lovely!

Honestly in love with this top and want it in every colour. I’m between 10-12 and I got a medium and it fits perfectly!!! xx

Cute

Love this top lightweight and comfortable

best bag I own!

I am so so in love with this bag! the quality is amazing, i know its going to last a long time! I've had so many compliments, everyone is asking me where i got it! Im happy to tell them it was from a small independant sustainable business in the UK which is so cool! I struggled to find anything nearly as nice. So happy with my purchase, customer service was top notch too!

Beautiful!

LOVE this colour. A number of people have said it in other reviews and I agree - you need to size up. Check the size chart against your measurements to make sure you're getting the right size - I ended up having to go up 2 sizes. I also have to hem the legs as they're way too long on me, but that's an easy fix.

This isn't normally a piece I would buy as I didn't think I'd like the style but as soon as I saw this in burgundy, I just had to have it! I'm so glad I bought it! It's super comfortable, a stunning colour, and very flattering. I'll be wearing it all the time!

Love this top, love this company

I had originally bought this in raw and when it arrived there was a pull in one of the threads that was quite noticeable. I wanted to exchange for this colour and a larger size anyway and Danielle could not have been more kind and helpful! The return/exchange process is super easy, Danielle is directly in touch with you with a personal email as soon as she can be, and everything is shipped out REALLY quickly.

This top is feminine, flattering, and a gorgeous colour. I love the company's ethos, Danielle is lovely and so helpful, and the clothing and bags are beautifully made from a beautiful and sustainable fabric - what more could you ask for? :-)

GORGEOUS

This colour... It's stunning. SUPER comfy, I love the coconut buttons, and I'm basically going to live in this shirt! If you're thinking of getting one, just do it. You'll love it!

Love the colour and size

PERFECT to fit all my makeup bits and pieces and it's such a lovely fabric and colour. I've got my eye on more of your lovely bags and backpacks, so I'll certainly be back for more!

Love these!

As someone else said in another review - these will go with everything! The colour is not like anything else I've seen but it's neutral enough to go with so many tops. Do check sizing as I had to size up from my usual size but following the size guide, they fit great! Also, they're great for someone short like me as they are cropped on someone average height but fall as full-length trouser on me. I love them! I'm hoping they'll eventually come out in different colours as I'd love another pair!

Super comfy, super cute!

I bought several items in my order and I think this is my favourite piece! The hemp fabric for all my items is just gorgeous, but in these dungarees it's so comfy and I know it'll just get softer with each wash! I will say I'm quite short at 5'3 so have to hem the legs and may move the buttons to get a tighter fit on top, but it's all worth it as these will last ages. Love them!

Second time lucky!

My first order of Burgundy dungarees were a very snug fit...I could have had a refund, but Danielle offered to measure and compare the next size up for me. I'm short and was worried about the length of the bodice bit. Anyway the good news is I have a pair that fit really well! Took a while but worth the wait to get a good fit, great colour and an ethically produced pair of dungarees!
