Hemp-Linen and Cotton Rucksack
Together with our Nepali partners we designed a Hemp-Linen and Cotton rucksack which balances the needs of nature with the needs of human beings. It is durable, breathable, natural, sustainable and above all, it has a beautiful simplicity. The rucksack will comfortably fit a laptop and some casual day trip items.
The exterior of the rucksack is made from hemp-linen, which is sustainable, biodegradable and ensures durability and breathability. The interior and straps are made from cotton which is soft, breathable and biodegradable. We use industry standard zips from the reputable YKK group.
Currently, many rucksacks are still made from plastic-based materials. We made ours using primarily hemp and cotton so it won’t end up in landfill. Hemp-linen and cotton are natural materials and therefore will biodegrade without a problem.
Hemp naturally chokes out the competing plants so strong chemical herbicides aren’t needed, whilst it uses a relatively small area of land in cultivation which means that large areas of natural land do not need to be cleared for cultivation. On top of this, it has a very short time between planting and harvest from between 90-120 days. What’s more, hemp is incredibly versatile. Cotton, on the other hand, is 100% biodegradable, soft and breathable.
