  • Maison Bengal was set up in 2004 in order to help fight poverty in Bangladesh, working particularly with mothers and young women.

    Produced by a fair trade company working with NGOs and artisan cooperatives in Bangladesh. Their trading philosophy is aimed at improving the lives of marginalised communities by developing a sustainable market for their products.

    The company was formed after its owner spent years as an aid worker in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Whilst there, and witnessing young children hand-rolling hundreds of cigarettes for only 20p per day, her vision was to empower the mothers of such children, teaching them crafts and allowing them to secure an income through the production of handicrafts 

    As a company they believe that fair trade can act as an important bridge between worlds, fostering a better understanding between both ends of the supply chain, the customer and the producer. The products are all handmade and blend traditional artisanal skills with contemporary design.
