Great fashion without the human or environmental cost
Our tote bags are made from sustainable hemp fibre; one of the most sustainable fibres on this earth! Did you know even natural materials can be harmful to the environment? Not Hemp! It gives back to the land year after year and provides a plentiful source of income for rural Nepalese villages. These Hemp tote bags are the perfect alternative to single-use plastic bags!
Skillfully Handcrafted In Nepal
All of our bags are handcrafted by small family-run businesses in Nepal. Each bag is lovingly made in Kathmandu, a city full of rich heritage and culture. Our hemp is grown, harvested and spun in Bajura village in the Himalayas. It is woven by women using traditional techniques passed on through generations.
Durable and long-lasting
Hemp is one of the longest and strongest natural fibres, four times stronger than cotton! This means your bag will last for years to come, no need for throw-away fast fashion! Globally we use around 500 billion (yes, you read it right?!) single-use carrier bags per year. These Hemp tote bags will have your back through hundreds of uses and save the oceans from unnecessary plastic waste!
Practical and fashionable!
Our tote bags are perfect for shopping, school, university and everyday use! Their neutral colour means they can be paired with almost any outfit and suit every gender!
A Tree Is Planted With Every Order!
Every order placed with Hemp & Hope helps to replenish forests around the world! We work with the non-profit organisation OneTreePlanted who use our donation to plant trees on your behalf! You don't even have to pay a penny extra!
We get it! There's nothing worse than receiving a package wrapped in awful plastic tape and non-recyclable materials! We ONLY use biodegradable materials in our packaging, we would never pass the waste burden on to you! We use paper tape and recycled kraft boxes meaning that everything can be easily recycled in the same bin!
Who are we?
Hemp & Hope is a female-owned sustainable brand focused on giving back with everything we do! We're not really in it for the money.. we are simply passionate about ethical fashion! Hemp & Hope was started during a backpacking trip to India and Nepal in 2019. We fell in love with the country and its people and wanted to give something back! We design all of our bags here in Scotland and work with talented makers in Nepal to bring them to life! We are so excited to have you along on this journey with us!
