Buyers are raving!

This shop got multiple 5-star reviews in the past 7 days.

Announcement    If you need to contact me please note I try and respond to all messages between 9-10am every morning.

All items sent 1st class except paper. Paper is sent 2nd class folded, if you prefer it in a postal tube please upgrade to postal tube at checkout. International Lokta paper orders are posted in a tube as standard.

If your postage charges seem too high please don't hesitate to message me, I will always be happy to help in providing accurate shipping costs. Unfortunately the shipping calculator on Etsy is not always accurate if you are ordering more than one item from the shop because it cannot calculate the weight of the order (like all postal services require) but instead calculates it on quantity, leading the price to sometimes be inaccurate. So please message me if you are unsure.

We use biodegradable mailing bags and 75% recycled cardboard posting materials in an effort to stay low impact and environmentally friendly. I also upcycled packaging filler materials. There is no plastic used in our packaging unless it is a) biodegradable plastic or b) upcycled. When I say biodegradable this means it will start degrading after a year, not 400 years!

Handmade, Sustainable and Eco Friendly Crafts and Craft Supplies from Nepal.

Heaven Hemp because it's heaven sent...
Hello there! Beginning from the bark of the plant to the fiber to the yarn to the finished product is the way we have evolved Heaven Hemp. Using natural fibres like hemp, lokta, giant Himalayan nettle, banana, bamboo, cashmere & recycled silk we have built up a range of beautiful handmade paper, shawls, bags, accessories, and homeware, sustainably. Our team are spread out between Nepal and the UK. We are committed to all materials, craft supplies and labour being fairly traded.

HANDMADE IN NEPAL

Please be aware the items we sell are perfectly imperfect because of the nature of them being handmade. Some parts of the woven cloth may be slightly thicker than others, there may be slubs in the shirts or stray bits of other yarn. We strongly believe this is part of their charm and authenticity.

SHIPPING

All our products are dispatched with love and attention using biodegradable materials, any cardboard that we use is made from 75% recycled cardboard and we upcycle as much as possible including upcycled bubble wrap from the local bakery.

SOCIAL WORK

Social Work is especially important in Nepal as it is one of the economically poorest countries in the world. A percentage of all profits go to the Lalit Kumari Science Scholarship Fund which was started by Udaya's father and is now managed by Udaya himself. This project ensures outstanding students in Sindhuli district are provided with upkeep and fees for University in Nepal.

& TRAVEL

Alongside work with natural fibers the team at Heaven Hemp also enjoy showing clients 'our' Nepal. We design adventure motorcycle tours at Ride Nepal (www.ridenepal.co.uk) and tailor make trekking holidays, sightseeing tours and yoga-retreats at Bespoke Nepal (www.bespokenepal.co.uk). Much like Heaven Hemp, we are committed to managing the trips sustainably, on a small scale with only positive impacts on the local communities.
