Uttarakhand has seen mass migration and most of the villages are either uninhabited or full of old men, women and children as male members have moved to cities in search of jobs. Though these families have small farms they don’t do farming as animals destroys their crops. 80% of the farmers have left farming in the hills of Uttarakhand.
We want to change this problem in an opportunity for these people. Though logistics is very hard, due to unmaintained mountain roads traveling to the nearest market or city is a nightmare. Practically no industry exists in these mountains. We travelled to dozens of remote mountains, trained these great women in their traditional craft of weaving, sewing, accessory making and provide them jobs and above all an identity.
We have created a value chain and involved hundreds of women in farming (hemp farming is less labour intensive) , retting of hemp plants, degumming, carding, sewing, handlooms etc. We believe that women are like the roots of the tress, if you empower a woman she will empower an entire community around her. We train them in marketing, quality control etc. and give them platform to sell their products at fair price.
Every inch of fabric or clothing on these pages comes from beautiful remote Himalayan villages of Uttarakhand, India made by love and care by these hard working women. These women from mountains are already very beautiful in appearance and at heart but now they are making the world a better place by promoting the most sustainable plant on earth.

Hemp Fiber Facts
Hemp fibers have been in human use for close to 10,000 years. It is a versatile and fully biodegradable fiber with multiple uses. Recent concerns with environmental degradation have brought hemp fibers back into focus and newer uses are emerging.
Hemp for fiber use is planted closely together to grow tall and slender with hardly any branches. Typically harvested as the seeds start coming, hemp stalks are left in the field for retting. Natural decay breaks the hurds and softens the bast fibers. A decorticator machine separates the bast fibers from the hurds.
The most popular use of hemp fibers is in the textile industry. With rising awareness about the environmental costs of synthetic clothes and cotton, people have started proactively looking for more eco-friendly fabrics.

What is Special about Hemp Fibers from Rudraprayag?
Quite a few things, as it happens. First of all, you get fibers from hemp grown 100% organically. Uttarakhand is one of the handfuls of places around the world that has banned the agricultural use of fertilizers and other chemicals. We also have organic certification.
Rudraprayag – where we grow most of our hemp – has just the right kind of soil and climate for hemp to grow naturally. The mineral-rich soil nurtures our plants to be strong and healthy. Fallen leaves and the feces of grazing domesticated animals provide all the additional nutrition they need.
Hemp cultivation has been natural to the farmers in the region. The farming wisdom handed down generations ensures that the plants are of the best quality. We combine modern know-how only to further enhance the quality of the fibers.
Poverty and hunger ruled the farming families of Rudraprayag before Hemp Foundation connected their products to the growing global market for hemp. High seasonal migration in search of work disrupted family life and the natural social fabric of the region.

Women in the mountains do almost everything their menfolk do. With just one difference. Men carry loads for earning an income. Women carry loads as part of their unpaid household chores. Men travel on foot across distances guiding tourists against a payment. Women do that to collect fuel and fodder.
