Undyed handspun hemp or nettle twines have been crochetted to form the coincase’s base. The main fabric has been handwoven with the same handspun himalayan hemp or nettle twine. The hemp fabrics are handyed with natural raw materials. These raw materials have been used for both herbal medicines & dyes for centuries. The himalayan hemp and nettle has also been harvested, retted, hand-spun & hand-woven in the remote villages of Nepal much in the same way as it has always been done.
Our nettle coincases are available in the natural undyed shade only, whereas the hemp coincases come in both natural and a range of earthy colours. The hemp cotton fabric lining varies and may differ from the images shown.
An ideal gift of nature.
