Hello there Makiri,
Namaste from Nepal! I just wanted to drop you a line about our company, 'Heaven Hemp' here in Kathmandu which I run with my (British) wife. I've been working here in Nepal since 2002 when I set up my own workshop (we have a permanent team of 8) to design manufacture and export ethically produced natural fibre goods - wild hemp, wild nettle, banana, peace silk, wool and bamboo.
We now export clothes, accessories, homeware, fabric and yarn to the UK, Norway, the US, Japan and India. As well as using power-loomed natural fibre blends for our clothes, we also source wild hemp and wild nettle yarn and fabric (naturally organic) from farming families in the hills who hand-spin the yarn and hand-weave it on small looms. We have also just started to design and make our own handloomed fabrics too.
You can see some of our products at www.wildweaves.co.uk, including the new ‘balika’ range of kids' clothes which Rosie (my wife) designed (and my kids modelled!) The site www.heavenhemp.co.uk is our wholesale catalogue. We are trying to spread the word about what we do to create interest in our products, create jobs, and to keep the tradition of hand spun yarn and hand loomed cloth alive in Nepal.

Please drop me a line if I can tell you anything more,

Take care
Udaya
