This clutch purse is made out of a stunning yellow hand loomed hemp. The ethical and organic production of this fabric, from harvesting to weaving, is a year long process. The hemp is harvested in October. The bark is removed from the stalks and is split into strips. The rough fibres are joined together to make continuos strands for weaving.

The strands are rolled between wood and stone to soften, smooth and polish the fibres. The hemp is then spun on a spinning wheel and wound onto hand held spools, The hemp is boiled several times to further soften the fibres.

The strands are spliced and prepared for weaving on a traditional wooden loom. The end result is a strong durable cloth that has natural striations and slubs throughout, that adds to its unique organic beauty.

This ancient fibre has been cultivated around the world for 12 000 years. It has a low environmental impact and yields three times as much raw fibre as cotton.

I believe this fabric has more integrity than any other fabric I have used.

I spent time drawing the paisley peacock design. I then transposed the design into a hand cut stencil and screen printed the image to the hemp using black water based ink. I heat fixed the print once it was dry.

I then sewed the purse together including a layer of duck cloth, wadding, and a lovely black linen/cotton lining that has the Sir Tom label screen printed in silver to one side.

Finally, I attached the gorgeous silver nickel kiss-lock purse frame to keep all your goodies safe and sound.
