Hemptress Makes Hemp Chic with Eco-Friendly Handbag Line

Posted on: May 23

When you hear the term hemp bag you tend to think of trippy tie-dyed purses from the local markets. But new handbag label Hemptress shows us that this eco-friendly material can be utilized for some super stylish accessories.

My only question is, why didn't this happen sooner? Hemp is the world's strongest natural fiber, it requires little to no pesticides and far less water than cotton to grow, and it takes just a few months to reach maturity. That makes it very sustainable and environmentally friendly.

The Hemptress bags are made from 100% hemp and accented with repurposed recycled leather and gorgeous gold-toned hardware. I love the soft ruffles of this Mona Satchel, which is available for just $175.

You can feel a bit better about spending money on the brand knowing that Hemptress donates a portion of profits to an animal rights group and Vote Hemp.

Hemptress bags are available at a range of North American retailers and online stores including Econscious Market and Living Echo.
