Our 100% natural, handmade Community Fair Trade grass baskets are created by the artisans of Dhaka Handicrafts in Bangladesh.

THE SUPPLIER

Dhaka Handicrafts was founded by an international development agency in 1976, and aims to create fair income-generating opportunities for socio-economically disadvantaged artisans in remote areas, particularly women.

RURAL ECONOMY

Through Community Fair Trade, we are providing over 1,800 families in over 40 artisan groups with access to regular orders and wages.

PROTECTING WILDLIFE

TAs well as providing regular employment and wages Dhaka Handicrafts are also involved with projects and awareness drives to raise the issue of gender inequality and support women’s leadership. For example, one of their social development programmes is a highly successful scholarship scheme which is empowering 15 girls from the producer groups with education.

A BIG IMPACT

Dhaka Handicrafts is also committed to caring for the environment: through their sapling distribution programme, they donate saplings to local communities. Since the start of the project in 2004 they have donated over 2,400 saplings.
