Hemp, which grows wild near remote villages in Western Nepal, takes about a year to mature. Harvested at the end of the growing season when the plants are cut, the stalks are treated with organic material and sun dried over a period of two to three months.
Creating yarn from hemp plants is a multi-step process performed entirely by hand. Our natural treatment of the yarns releases the beautiful fibers from the indigenous hemp plants. Local conditions such as the amount of rainfall also impact the end result, producing color variations that enhance the unique nature of our floor coverings.
Hemp is indigenous to the Indian sub-continent region and grows naturally without the need for irrigation or cultivation. Since these fibers are also naturally resistant to pests, the impact on the environment is minimal.
Available in three natural shades.
