About Maison Bengal
Maison Bengal is a fairtrade and ethical company set-up in 2004 in order to help fight poverty in Bangladesh, working particularly with mothers and young women. Working closely with three fair trade organisations in the country, each one best placed to identify the most marginalised communities in their area and provide training in handicraft production. Maison Bengal works with each group separately to utilise their locally grown natural materials and develop their renowned traditional skills. This combined with their 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 5,000 women throughout Bangladesh, happily able to work in their home environment enabling them to care for as well as financially support their families. For SS21 we will be offering a selection of their fun, colourful macrame bags and totes.
