The Hemd Story
Hemd is to upcycle and restore the good things in life.
Fascinated by the notion that one man’s waste is another man’s treasure, a desire to be environmentally friendly and a passion for all thing creative, Hemd was born: We fell in love with the bold graphics of the rice sacks and the rich textures of coffee burlap, which are stamped with the country of origin, and bear the rustic markings of both merchant and exporter. Disheartened by the consumer waste culture and the mundane high street we decided to rescue these treasures and create essential gears for our vivacious life.
Each piece is handmade with love and respect for the environment and people. Hemd bags help prevent the materials to be just thrown out as a waste, understanding that most of them will not degrade naturally. We salvage, restore and re-purpose materials such as tires, tubes, seat belts, vegetable-tanned leather and coconut shells. We also source hardware pieces made from reclaimed metal.
One of our main materials, the rice sack not only add vibrancy and playfulness to our design but it is also light weight material that offers durability, re-usability and is moisture resistance. Our main fabric, the coffee burlap is made from jute, a natural vegetable fiber which is strong and resilient. The production of jute is fully sustainable, needs no pesticides or be genetically modified to grow and is biodegradable. Ours bags are created from a customized & limited production.
