Great fashion doesn't have to destroy the planet...
Our backpacks 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.
Handcrafted In Nepal
All of our bags are skillfully 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! 13,000,000 Tonnes of cheaply made fast fashion items end up in landfill every year, but with our bags, they'll by your side for a long long time!
Practical and fashionable!
The Tula backpacks have a laptop insert that fits up to a 15-inch screen, which means its perfect for school or university! The straps are padded for extra comfort so you can carry about all those heavy books! The hemp bags also have two bottle pouches on either side. You won't have to choose between a reusable coffee cup or a water bottle and don't have to risk putting it in your bag!
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!
