Urban Re-leaf Home seeks to renew your home from the inside out. With an emphasis on sustainability and originality, each pillow cover is handcrafted with the high-quality hemp to provide style and eco-conscious elegance to any room. No two products are alike, ensuring that you have a one of a kind piece in your home that is uniquely you — and Uncharacteristically Hemp.
At Urban Re-leaf Home, we believe that every room deserves at least one original piece to give it a bit of heart and soul. When designing, we often use one-of-a-kind textiles sourced from all over the world to add depth, intrigue, and warmth to your home. The final hand-selected patterns and colors feel modern and fresh but also have a rustic flair that can easily pair with any home decor. We love that many of the pieces have been hand-dyed or hand-painted and embrace every little nuance. Each imperfection is an integral part of its unique beauty. We hope you enjoy!
In the Words of Our Founder…
After 10 years of working in the mortgage business, I was looking for a new opportunity. After all that time, I was still struggling and with the passing of Frank Dodd, it just wasn’t as fun as it used to be. While looking for a new challenge I stumbled upon a meeting called “Cannabis and Real Estate”. It sounded interesting and like nothing I had done before, so I decided to check it out.
That night was truly an eye-opening experience for me. With the passage of cannabis legalization in California, I thought this is the new frontier. In that meeting, I learned so much about the power of cannabis and that its sister plant, hemp, is actually federally legal across the US. It was that very night I called up my friends and decided to start my first cannabis business — a candle company.
Now that I had a goal in mind, I set out to do my own research and make owning my own cannabis business a reality. Not only did I learn about the many benefits of the hemp plant, I began to look deeper into hemp textiles. I learned that hemp is one of the strongest natural fibers, antimicrobial, hypoallergenic, and incredibly good for the environment — it uses much less water to grow, much less space, and it grows quickly, making it a great alternative to cotton or other traditional textiles. If that isn’t compelling enough, hemp is also UV resistant and softens over time!
With my candle business underway, I decided it was time to add another layer to my cannabis cake with a home goods business using hemp textiles. And that’s how Urban Re-Leaf Home was born.
So here I am, in the cannabis business. I hope you will stay with me on my journey and we can make a fun and enjoyable space together.
