In the present discussion for a sustainable future, meet the people who are going back to the roots of humanity for solutions. Hemis is India’s first all-hemp lifestyle store offering designs that are a marriage of responsibly sourced, earth-friendly materials and out-of-the-box ideas.
Ranging from apparel to accessories, footwear to furnishing, wellness, nutrition, and much more, Hemis is about exquisitely crafted products made from various parts of the hemp plant, with organic blends of cotton, silk and other natural materials.
Hemp fabrics are breathable, anti-microbial and reflect up to 95 per cent UV rays, making for a great choice of durable yet comfortable fabric. Being a natural moisturiser with anti-ageing properties, hemp oil is a natural organic base for safe skin products.
Run by a group of talented and driven individuals, Hemis values collaborations with designers and artisans who share their vision for a sustainable future. These include their joint ventures with September Shoes to create a line of exclusive line of footwear showcasing hemp and vegan fabric.
Other associations include an inimitable range of traditional and Western fusion-wear, with Kalamkari and block prints that come in all sizes of comfort.
It also works closely with Safa – a social venture with a focus on reducing inequality and poverty, that empowers women from underprivileged backgrounds by giving them employment opportunities. Along with other women-focused sustainable brands like Ji and Yes, Hemis has encouraged many women with their craftsmanship, through a range of accessories made of Hemp Canvas and a range of hemp-blend fabrics.
“Empowerment is important for the resolution of the many issues faced by women in our country today. What better way to do that than build a sustainable future envisioned by those women themselves,” says Prashansa Shahani, founder & CEO of Hemis.
With upcoming categories including a new line for kids apparel, and a whole new collection in Ikat and knits, Hemis is all set to bring sustainable luxury for a more conscious and contemporary lifestyle.
