Hello there ilaria,
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 . Hope to hear from you and would like to be your friend. Take care,
Hello again. My textiles are designed using the colours in the flags of countries: a European range, Asian range and African range. Each of them is registered and has been recognised by the respective government as a national symbol and worn to help create awareness. The Africa ones are woven in the UK and made into a range of accessories. A percentage of the profits from these goes to set up small garment businesses in Africa. I also have the textiles woven in Africa where these businesses make clothing items, fashionwear, etc for their own domestic market and export. The idea is transferable. I have extended the idea to include uniforms made in Africa for the US schools market and I have a set of Italian designs called Rossoneri, Nerazzurri, Juve and Puccini which could be very popular.
The textiles and products are ethically-produced and eco-friendly.
