ARTISAN HUT

Artisan Hut works with over 250 artisans in rural areas such as Narshingdi and Jhenaidha.

By focusing on traditional hand skills, like hand weaving, block printing and hand embroidery, a huge number of people can benefit from making clothes, that otherwise would not.

The highly skilled, traditional hand weavers of Bangladesh are being put out of work by the demand for cheap, fast fashion. When the only priority is to get the garment from the design board to the shop floor in 6 weeks, hand weavers cannot compete with power looms.

Artisan Hut was founded to deal with this crisis by using and celebrating their traditional hand weaving, block printing and hand embroidery skills.
