#doDifferent, One Garment at a Time
South Africa is a country with a rich and diverse natural heritage. However, it is also a country that is facing a number of environmental challenges, including climate change, water scarcity, and pollution. In recent years, there has been a growing awareness of the need for sustainability in South Africa. This is evident in the increasing number of businesses, organizations, and individuals that are taking steps to reduce their environmental impact. This week, we are looking at one of these #doDifferent companies, and how they are paving the way forward in South Africa.
HempLove is a sustainable and ethical skincare and clothing company based in Cape Town, South Africa, making a positive impact on the world, one garment at a time. Co-founded by Lorè and Lara Blevi, HempLove is passionate about using the power of fashion to make a difference. From their commitment to using sustainable materials and ethical manufacturing practices to their support of local communities and women's empowerment, setting a new standard for the fashion industry.
HempLove's garments are made from hemp fibre, a sustainable and eco-friendly material. Hemp is one of the most durable and versatile fibres on the planet, and it requires very little water and land to grow. They also uses natural dyes and plastic-free packaging to further reduce its environmental impact.
In addition to its commitment to sustainability, HempLove is also committed to social responsibility. The company works with local women to teach them how to weave handbags from hemp twine, helping them to create an income for themselves. HempLove also aims to source its raw fibres from Africa in the near future, which would provide complete traceability of the fibres and support the local economy.
