What is this project all about?
With your help we want to promote the production and usage of hemp and show its positive characteristics with our first own products.
... used for clothes, building and paper about 5000 years ago
... solide, long-lasting, tear-resistent, durable
... 100% biological & vegan
... no use of harmful chemical products or pesticides
... modern designs without typical "eco-feel"
... natural dyes
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
Our aims are
... to help our environment,
... to reduce water intensive production processes
... to extend the range of natural accessories and products stylishly and in high quality
Organic by nature hemp is particularly suitable for allergy sufferers and people with skin conditions.
Also everyone who wants to help our nature and use beautiful sustainable products at the same time may support ELZBAG though :-)
Why would you support this project?
It's time to show people that the production of currently most
used fabrics as cotton harms our nature and that hemp has great
potential to becoming THE textile raw material.
The aim is, with your support, to make hemp an everyday material in Germany and give it a place in the textile sector.
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
0,50 Euro of every donation go straight to a charitable
foundation supporting the preservation of our planet.
In the course of the campaign you'll have the chance to vote for your favorite foundation on facebook.com/elzbag :-)
The rest of the money will be used for the following:
- purchase of the minimum order of fabrics in the near EU countries
- creating jobs (sewer, marketing/business or finance)
- rent of a working area for the first months (office or coworking space)
- production of your rewards and future products
- PR & Marketing
Who are the people behind the project?
In the moment it's me, Elisabeth, standing behind the project

project and realizing their passion.
It's a personal matter for me to save our environment and find additional alternative raw materials for our lives - even with little steps.
Last but not least I want to thank the following persons for
giving me feedback on this project and supporting me:
