**NUMBAT Australia** – about the product The fabric used in the manufacture of NUMBAT Australia products is sourced from the hilly & mountainous regions of the Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal where it has grown wild for centuries. Every piece is handmade by skilled and creative Himalayan artisans (men and women) using only natural and eco-friendly raw material. As a result of this by hand process colours and stitching may vary from one piece to another – this adds to the uniqueness of the product and its bohemian feel.
**WHY WEAR HEMP?** Clothing made of hemp fibre is lightweight and absorbent, with three times the tensile strength of cotton and the first hemp plants were spun into fibre than 10,000 years ago. Whilst being durable and long lasting because it is grown free of any chemicals it is a healthy and environmentally conscious material for everyday clothing. Hemp also becomes softer with washing and will wear in rather than wear out, it has excellent breathability and insulation properties – Making the wearer cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
