Hello there Jules,
I have been working with natural fibres in Nepal for a long time now and can supply you with fibre, yarns, textiles, as well as finished goods. 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 . I have been working on my own label called "Heaven Hemp" because it is heaven sent. Hope to hear from you and would like to be your friend. Take care,
