About the bags
Hemptress is a contemporary fashion handbag and accessory brand, who's bags are primarily made out of hemp. Many have “reborn” recycled leather trim (repurposed from recycled leather) and they are all luxuriously lined with a silk/hemp blend lining, except for the vegan collections which have a hemp/RPET lining. Our metal zippers are top quality (because a bag is only as sustainable as its zipper) and our inside zippers are made from recycled nylon. Additionally, we use factories that adhere to fair trade practices, who only employ highly skilled artisans.
But we don’t stop there. Our labels are made of hemp, our hangtags, business cards, and all collateral are printed on recycled paper with soy ink, our shipping boxes are made from 100% post consumer waste and we use a carbon neutral shipping program to ship our bags out to clients (www.greenshipping.com). We will also be donating a portion of our profits to an animal rights group as well as Vote Hemp.
What is innovative about Hemptress, is that our line is Fashion-forward AND Eco-friendly. We focus heavily on trend analysis, so these fashion-forward bags are doubly sustainable, and will stay stylish for years to come.
Retail prices: from $79 to $198
