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.

The Many Uses of Hemp Hurds
Hemp stalks contain two kinds of fibers: bast and hurd. The outer layer of the stalks is bast fiber while the woody inner core is known as hurds. Similar to flax shives, hemp hurds are softer and coarser. Rich in cellulose, hemp hurds have exceptional thermal retention qualities. Hemp hurds are also noise- and fire-resistant. That makes hemp hurds an excellent insulation material. Hemp insulation retains heat and releases it only when the atmosphere is cooler. This natural airconditioning contributes to a greener planet by saving the use of non-renewable energy sources. Growing global concerns about a more sustainable way of living have put hemp hurds at the center of the construction industry. Hemp hurds in conjunction with lime as a binder makes hempcrete. When mixed with water, it becomes hemp-clay. People are increasingly using both as building materials. Hemp-clay wins over hempcrete in terms of sustainability, as the supply of clay is considerably more abundant than lime. Also, hempcrete needs water to set, but hemp-clay sets on its own. Hemp composites as insulation or building material are entirely carbon neutral. That is the biggest advantage. Hemp hurd composites have also made inroads in the automotive industry. Increasingly more carmakers are using hemp hurd composites for door panels and insulation. Fully biodegradable plastic made from hemp hurds has the potential to free the world from the hazards of plastic pollution. Hemp hurds are usable for making paper. They also make good animal bedding. Eco-conscious pet-owners show a distinct preference for these beddings.

What’s Special About Producing Hemp Hurds in Rudraprayag, Uttarakhand?
We have achieved worldwide recognition as the champions of sustainable development because of a variety of reasons. The most important among them is: the location of our hemp farms, our commitment to organic production, and our social mission.
Some areas in Rudraprayag, a district in the northwestern Indian state of Uttarakhand, are mountains that remain covered in snow all through the year. Other parts of it are resplendent in the lush greenery of the lower heights of the regal Himalayas. That is where most of our hemp grows. The pollution-free mountain air, the natural mineral-intensity of the soil, and the generational wisdom of local farmers combine to make our hemp plants amazingly healthy. You get hemp hurds of the highest quality possible as a result.
FULLY ORGANIC FARMING
It is illegal in Uttarakhand to use fertilizers or other chemicals for agriculture. Deeply committed to this forward-looking policy for sustainability, our hemp plants grow 100% organically. They need little beyond the mineral-rich soil, the pure air, and the climate that is just right for hemp. Leaves that the trees shed and the dung of grazing animals take care of whatever extra nourishment our plants need. The insights of local farmers born from experience take care of the rest. We have organic certification and relevant laboratory reports to demonstrate the quality of our hemp hurds.
THE SOCIAL COMMITMENT
Hemp Foundation is not just a profit-making business, it is a social enterprise. Poverty and hunger haunted the farming families in Rudraprayag on a daily basis before we stepped in to ensure that the high-quality hemp they produce gets linked to the growing global market. Seasonal migration in search of income disrupted family life in Rudraprayag and disturbed the natural patterns of rural community life. The Hemp Foundation initiative has restored the natural ethos of family and community life in Rudraprayag. When you choose us as your bulk hemp hurds supplier, you earn the right to bask in the glory of saving Rudraprayag families from starvation, of helping their children to go to school.
