Hogla leaves and Jute plants are some of the most sustainable materials that nature can provides us with. These plants are sustainably harvested and dried to convert into strips or fibers. These are then hand-braided and weaved into beautiful functional baskets by master artisans in Bangladesh.
The origins of chindi weaving come from a humble place. Historically, women began upcycling old cotton clothing, creating useful items for their homes to save money and resources. Cotton scraps and sustainable jute fibers are woven together and sewn to create everything from rugs and baskets, to trivets. These materials get to live a second life as beautiful, colorful home additions.
Basket Weaving Artisans
Bangladesh has suffered genocide, floods, cyclones and tornados, and the dense population is extremely impoverished. As a response to these events, a non-profit was formed to provide art training, health camps, and social and economic development programs to empower artisans. Our artisans are part of this group.
We partner with a small group of 12 women artisans located in the state of Rajasthan in Northwest India. They live in a rural area in a small village that is well connected to markets, allowing them to easily transport products. Through their craft, they are now gaining independence and participating in training aimed at enhancing their skills.
