Beautiful style doesn't have to destroy lives or the environment
Our clothing is 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. It grows completely chemical free which means its kind to our workers and your skin!
Skillfully Handcrafted In Nepal
Our clothing is designed by us here in Scotland and is then skillfully crafted in Nepal. The hemp we use to make our clothing grows naturally in Baglung village in the Himalayas. It is harvested there and woven into hemp textiles by women using ancient techniques. We work in small batches to ensure each garment receives the right care and attention.
Soft but durable
Hemp is one of the longest and strongest natural fibres, four times stronger than cotton! This means your clothing will last for years to come, no need for throw-away fast fashion! It is surprisingly soft and if you treat it well, it will get softer with every wash! Doing your research and making ethical choices when buying clothing pays off in the long run for both the environment and your wallet!

Hello! Im Danielle, the founder of Hemp & Hope. In August 2019, 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!
Hemp & Hope is a sustainable fashion brand founded in 2019. We were inspired to make a difference after a backpacking trip in India and Nepal. We now work with family run businesses in Kathmandu and Pokhara to make our garments from Hemp Fibre!
