A Deeper Problem
The silence of the empty villages of Uttarakhand cries of a social catastrophe. Either the villages are completely abandoned or there are those where young men have left to nearby cities in search of jobs, leaving behind women, children and old men. This not only makes the latter group, especially women, vulnerable but also keeps them in a state of perpetual financial want.
Most men do not return for months and the women spend their days and nights anxiously thinking about the already insufficient supplies that are running out much faster than expected. They keep staring at the door of their dilapidated houses, hoping for them to return with money that will help them feed their children.
Naturally, women suffer from all possible sides. Staying away from their husbands, they are left to fend for themselves in their daily struggles. Hopelessly, they often witness their children’s hunger as they have no means of earning. Sometimes, these poor women face domestic abuse as they appear as a perfect punching bag for their husbands (when back home) to vent out their frustration.
What is more, they don’t get the social respect and recognition they deserve.
But a Small Step Can Make a Difference
Despite the fact that most families have small farms, a majority of them have left agriculture. Apart from the paucity of rains, fertilizers and meager returns on selling their produce, animals destroy a significant portion of their crops. The terrain on the hills is such that it is very hard to set up industries that might bring a positive change in the lives of the people. Besides, the setting up of industry, with its large carbon footprint is bad for the environment and therefore, non-sustainable.
As hemp jewelry manufacturer and bulk supplier, Hemp Foundation is helping out these beautiful Himalayan remote villages by raising awareness and promoting the manufacture of hemp-based products like hemp clothing, handmade hemp jewelry & accessories, etc. We have been encouraging women here to use their conventional artistic skills to produce exquisite hemp jewelry.
As hemp farming is not labor-intensive and hemp-based products are quite in vogue, the women appear to be the best workers. They can work from the comforts of their home, during the time slot that best suits them and become financially independent as well to take care of them and their family.
Just as the famous saying “empower a woman and she will empower the entire community,” we have started to witness some of the positive changes resulting from this.

Why Hemp Jewelry
Along with being trendy, handmade hemp jewelry is a win-win for both the environment and you. The following are some of the benefits that set the hemp jewelry apart from the other similar jewelry in this range.
- Strong & Durable: The handmade accessories made from any other fabric worn out easily and begins to show signs of wear and tear after a few weeks of use. Unlike that, hemp jewelry is highly durable and lasts significantly longer compared to the ones made of regular strings.
- Hypoallergenic: Most people complain of rashes and bruised skin after using metal or fabric-based jewelry. The presence of some heavy metals and other non-hypoallergenic substances are responsible for this. Hemp is a naturally hypoallergenic and hence goes easy on the skin. Besides, it is also a natural ultra-violet rays-blocker. Hence, wearing hemp jewelry in the sun can protect your covered areas from UV rays.
- Eco-friendly: In the times when global warming is a serious issue, anything that can reduce carbon footprint and is biodegradable is the best bet. Interestingly, the more hemp trees mean less CO2, meaning low carbon emission. Besides, it safely decomposes without causing any trouble to the environment, which makes it the ultimate choice today and in the times to come.
