Who We Are
Hemp Fabric Lab is a one-stop shop designers, creators and exporters to get their fix of sustainable fabrics. The idea for HFL came about because we saw a growing need for eco-friendly fabrics and lack of easy accessibility to them. Seeing that we were already working with one of nature’s best offering- Hemp, we decided that more people should get to experience it too.
The idea for HFL was formulated at Bombay Hemp Company (BOHECO)- India’s premier industrial and medicinal cannabis company with a desire to promote hemp textiles because of its numerous benefits to the environment and its incredible properties.
BOHECO is an agro-based enterprise re-imagining the future of Indian agriculture and sustainable living with hemp as its lens. The goal is to educate and advocate for industrial hemp, promote its benefits to society and assist local farmers in cultivating the crop by providing the best seeds and practices in cultivation techniques for poverty alleviation and rural development.
BOHECO’s grand vision and goal is to lay the foundation for a successful national eco-system which harnesses the greatest industrial & medicinal value out of hemp.
Our Mission + Vision
Being a product of BOHECO, Hemp Fabric Lab’s core mission is to educate and encourage brands, designers and consumers to adopt hemp and banish any myths surrounding it. We want to create an environment where we bring together innovators and creators from around the globe to create amazing things using our fabric.
Our vision is to be the frontrunners in the Indian hemp textile industry and a name to reckon with when people think of hemp fabric.
Hemp has numerous environmental benefits that promote sustainability: The hemp plant grows like weed, eliminating the need for most pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and thriving on less water than most crops. Because of its resiliency, it has also been flagged as a natural way to clean up soil pollution. Hemp actually absorbs carbon dioxide while it grows through natural photosynthesis, making it carbon negative from the get-go.
A Step Forward : Educate | Cultivate | Elevate
We are proud to announce that we have successfully attained the permission to cultivate Industrial Hemp in India by collaborating with the State Government of Uttarakhand. This has enabled us to be one step closer to the 100% “Make in India” initiative by producing Hemp fabrics from fibre to fabric.
Over and above, this will progressively benefit the farmers, weavers, customers, and the economy at large. So, let us all walk together and strive to achieve a massive circular gain by employing the most sustainable and ethical approach with Hemp Fabric Lab!
