Handmade Paper from Bangladesh

Handmade Paper from Bangladesh



In Bangladesh, they create delicate paper from everyday materials—jute, a common crop; silk, leftover from fabric mills that make sarees and punjabies; and even water hyacinth, a weed that fills the many waterways. They cut and fold the paper into shapes for cards, ornaments, garlands and gifts. What began as a small group of women making twine ropes from home has become a successful business of craftswomen working together, earning income to support their families and send their children to school. Ten Thousand Villages, a fair trade pioneer, partners with artisan group Prokritee to sell their handcrafted items in the U.S.
