Ten-Second Takeaway

Bangalore-based Be Hemp India uses hemp yarn to make a range of products including slippers, wallets, hats and even scarves.

To Hemp Or Not To Hemp

While growing {and smoking} cannabis is not legal in India, selling things made out of it, is allowed. Started by Benson Martis, Elston Menezes and Sayantan Halder {and their love for hemp}, Be Hemp sells products for everyday-use at extremely affordable rates. The rustic finish on all the things are the main attraction. The dream catchers, available in trippy kaleidoscopic colours, can make for great gifts or even to hang in your own bedroom. We also love their wallets that come in simple neutral shades and some with fun bohemian prints. Even these patched hemp pouches are pretty cool.

The slippers are also something we’re eyeing — so beachy and calming! If you’re heading out on vacay, it might be a great idea to carry these hats along! They also have accessories including bracelets/anklets with beads, wrist bands in Rastafarian colours , earrings for the happy vibe, beanies and scarves to keep you warm.

The Good Stuff

Be Hemp also makes leashes for dogs, rolling paper made of hemp and shower gels, oils made of hemp seeds, and even actual hemp seeds {yeah, you can consume them} that are a great natural source of protein. Most of Be Hemp’s stuff is sourced from Nepal, while some of it is obtained from Uttarakhand. Very soon they will be launching an all-hemp clothing line which will include, shirts, jeans, dresses and skirts. Time to join the circle, peeps! Love and peace.
