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 very 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. Working with each group separately to utilise their locally grown natural materials and develop their renowned traditional skills.
Using only locally grown natural materials such as jute and hogla (local sea-grass) Maison Bengal develop design ideas with close collaboration from her local fair trade partner organisations.
