5. HEMP GALLERY
From Frenchs Forests in NSW, Beatrice and Nicole are the mother-daughter duo behind Hemp Gallery.
Hemp Gallery started with the environmentalist desire to bring education and information to the masses about the value of hemp. After discovering that Hemp could offer all our basic needs; food, clothing, shelter and fuel in an environmentally sustainable way, they realised that the hemp industry was a perfect fit for their personal philosophy. In the late 90's Hemp Market (as it was known back then) was created in the garage of their old home. With a small selection of fabrics they became pioneers in the Australian Hemp Industry.
Their hemp and organic cotton bedding is made in Australia and sourced from a fairtrade factory in Northern China that Beatrice, determined to find a provider that met her sustainability standards, scouted in one of her trips to China.
