We want to change this problem is 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 traveled 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. And because of their collective work Hemp Foundation is a leading Hemp fabric manufacturer, wholesaler and hemp fabric distributor in US and Europe.

We have created a value chain and involved hundreds of women in farming (hemp farming is less labor-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 a platform to sell their products at a fair price.

Every inch of hemp fabric or hemp 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 the mountains are already very beautiful and at heart but now they are making the world a better place by promoting the most sustainable plant on earth.

Cotton uses the world’s 25% pesticide and 12% insecticide and uses a lot of water. In developing countries like India, 500 people die every day due to pesticide pollution caused by the cotton Industry. Some states are called cancer Cotton growers are modern day slaves and they have been caught in the capitalist cycle of some big biotech companies. Thousands of farmers commit suicide as they are unable to come out of the vicious cycle of poverty. All their profits go as input cost of buying GMO seeds, pesticides, insecticides and water. The irony is that Cotton is grown in areas where water is scarce. Millions of people are suffering from lack of drinking water and these same people are forced to grow cotton due to economic reasons. There is an entire sea as well as a river which has become dry due to cotton production.

The benefits of hemp are as follows:

  1. It takes  10 times less water than cotton.

Yes. According to a study published on  An official website of the United States government

Most photosensitive skin disorders are mainly triggered by radiation in the UVA wavelengths and may be aggravated by even extremely small UVA doses. This is especially true for disorders like chronic actinic dermatitis and solar urticaria. According to the European standard for Sun Protective Clothing , UVA transmittance of a fabric has to be lower than 5%. The UPF calculation does not take into account the transmittance in UVA wavelengths because it is mainly based on UVBEeryt. Consequently, high UPFs do not necessarily imply low transmission in UVA wavelengths. In our experiment, although several dyed fabrics had UPFs >15 , only the weld-dyed hemp matched a good or very good protection level, as stated by the corresponding UPF values, with a UVA transmittance value lower than 5%. Gambichler et al., in a sample collection of 196 different summer fabrics, found that seven had a UVA transmission greater than 5% despite a UPF >40.
