About Hemp Fabric Lab:

Hemp Fabric Lab is a one stop shop for designers, brands, artists, and creators at large to get their hands on Hemp and other sustainable fabrics and raw materials. Created by the Bombay Hemp Company (BOHECO) in 2018, Hemp Fabric Lab is a textile brand that uses Industrial Hemp or Cannabis Sativa to make fabrics that are good for the people and the planet. Because of its close association with Marijuana, there a lot of misconceptions surrounding Hemp. We’re on a mission to change that. In fact, through thoughtful content across social media, and word of mouth, we’ve managed to see considerable growth in our sales and our brand value. Now we want to take it one step further.

Where we need help

We have all the makings of a good brand – thoughtful products that customers love, a genuine story, passionate founders, and a great work culture.

We believe that brand communication and sales go hand-in-hand. In order for people to understand our mission, they need to understand what we’re doing and why we’re doing it.  As we add customers and new products, we strive to not only maintain our commitment to this core value but also continuously improve on it.
