10 best Hemp Backpacks In The World Right Now

Like us, we’re sure you’ve become more and more interested in searching for other great, earth-friendly hemp clothing and accessories at affordable prices. One of the most popular hemp products nowadays is hemp backpacks. Hemp material makes bags that are comfortable on your back and eco-friendly yet doesn’t pose the risk of damage that other, more delicate natural and sustainable materials do. Whether for school, work, travel, hiking, or everyday use, there are several reasons to buy hemp backpacks instead of backpacks made out of other materials. 

What is Hemp?

The breathable, lightweight material makes college hemp backpacks popular for students who have to rush around campus and cart around heavy books. Also, hemp bags are great for hiking because of its durability and lightweight material. Whatever you need a backpack for, eco-friendly companies around the world have created a wide variety of options.  We have selected our favorite pure hemp backpacks and hemp cotton backpacks colorful enough to brighten any occasion. Unlike many fairtrade or organic bags, you can get hemp bags wholesale or individually-made at reasonable prices. So, let’s look at some items that you will want to “add to cart” ASAP!

What we love about hemp:

  • Stronger than cotton (can hold more materials than the normal cotton backpack)
  • Washable (though you should check your specific bag to make sure it won’t mess up the other materials)
  • Retains dye (your backpack won’t fade if its frequently used) 
  • Breathable (easy to carry around when in the heat or exercising)
  • Resistant to mold and odor (we know sometimes frequently-used bags can get gross) 

What to know before you buy a hemp backpack

While hemp is known as an odor-resistant material, hemp backpacks are not the best way to carry around your stash, if you’re wanting to mask the smell. These bags are great for storage, but you may want to get odor-proof containers for extra protection. Amazon is a great place for cheap, high-quality options, and we selected the best odor-proof storage and smell-proof Amazon bags on two of our other posts, with several containers small enough to fit in all of these hemp bags. Okay, with that out of the way, on to the backpacks!

Conclusion

If you are like me, your cart may be full of backpacks by now, especially those you find through hemp bag wholesale. Hemp backpacks come in wide-ranging styles, from small to large, and in various colors and prices. Hemp bags are not only good to use for their practicality but also for their eco-friendly, ethical production.

As you probably noticed, the majority of our ten picks were produced in Nepal, from whence most excellent Himalayan hemp backpacks come. Nepal is a smaller yet prominent hemp producer in the world. Most of Nepal hemp production is from small scale businesses that are naturally more ethically-minded than many larger corporations. Many of these companies are committed to the ethical treatment of workers and the environment, so they are worth investing in.
