Please have a look at www.heavenhemp.co.uk and www.wildweaves.co.uk to get an idea of what we do. I work with hemp, nettle, cactus, banana, bamboo . Hope to hear from you and would like to be your friend. Take care,
Just a quick message to introduce my newly launched, ethical accessories co. NV London Calcutta, recently shortlisted in our launch season for the EFF's Innovation Award and voted as having one of the Top 10 Ethical accessories from the recent Pure Womenswear Exhibition at London's Olympia.

All our goods are designed in Britain, but produced in India, specifically West Bengal, using locally sourced, natural materials, traditional production methods and environmentally friendly dyes etc.
