Q: How did you start with Pure World bags?
A: Originally, it was a class project with the objective of creating a sustainable company. So, we wanted to sell organic products that were crafted in a socially responsible way. That’s when the first Pure World hemp backpack was born.
Q: What’s a Mystery Bag or Random Bag?
A: It’s just a random backpack from the ones we have in stock. All the bags are the same size - 14 x 19 x 6 inches, 25 liters.
Q: What’s the benefit to the environment? What makes your backpack different from other backpacks in terms of water consumption?
A: We use hemp material for our backpacks, which requires 50% less water and uses 50% of the land that cotton uses, and none of the pesticides.
Q: How long is shipping?
A: About a week (but depending on the manufacturing and shipping circumstances from our suppliers in Nepal). The bags come from our fulfillment center in Virginia but sometimes pre-order bags can be slightly delayed.
Q: Where are your bags made?
A: They are responsibly handcrafted by our partners in Nepal!
Q: How to properly wash your bags?
A: Hemp bags should be hand-washed using soap or detergent powder. Do not use dishwashing detergent power as it may contain some chemicals that are not suitable for the materials.
Here are some washing tips:
- Slowly soak the bag in hot water for 15 minutes.
- You can also soak the bag in vinegar.
- Rinse well by hand and wash the bag using organic soap or detergent powder.
- Air dry the bag for a few hours.
- Do not use any washing machines.
