December is fast approaching, and this means 1 thing. Christmas shopping galore and all things decorating and wrapping. For such a wonderful time of the year where we all strive to come up with new gifting ideas and unique wrappings, we at Totes and Tokens have collaborated with yet another eco-conscious female owned business here in Dubai; Hempy People, to bring you unique gift-wrapping styles that are beautiful and eco-friendly. Not only will your loved ones thank you so will Mother Nature.

Hempy People is a community of hemp enthusiasts. They co-create and inspire people to design and develop together with them. Their creations are 100% vegan (made from hemp), no chemicals, with breathable items ranging from hempy socks through, hempy cosmetics to hempy houses. We have collaborated to bring you the first hemp fabric gift wrapping range in Dubai provided by Hempy People for our upcoming workshop at their Hempara event at Fixie Café the Palm this November 26th from 1 to 3pm.

Why Hemp? Hemp is a natural fibre that can be used for many items including fabric and is incredibly eco-friendly. As it requires significantly less water than other clothing crops, and its ability to outgrow competing plants eliminates the need for harsh chemicals and pesticides, it’s naturally biodegradable, it absorbs carbon dioxide, and it gives goodness back to the earth by replenishing soil. Additionally, it’s naturally antimicrobial, it’s thermoregulating, and it’s 3 times more durable than cotton.
