  • MAISON BENGAL

    Maison Bengal was set-up in 2004 in order to help fight poverty in Bangladesh, working particularly with mothers and young women. They are based in Suffolk, UK and work very closely with three fair trade organisations in Bangladesh, each one best placed to identify the most marginalised communities in their area and provide training in handicraft production. Maison Bengal work with each group separately to utilise their locally grown natural materials and develop their renowned traditional skills. This, combined with contemporary designs, has allowed them to produce a comprehensive range of handwoven products. This process has taken many years of commitment and is a rewarding and constant work in progress.

    Maison Bengal now works with over five thousand women throughout Bangladesh, happily able to work in their home environment enabling them to care for as well as financially support their families.
