Bangladesh and Nepal, here we come!
At Trade Aid we believe in creating real relationships with the producers of our products, and we think this means meeting face to face. Two members of our craft team Lauren and Rosa are off on a whirlwind trip to visit our six Bangladeshi and two Nepali handcraft partners.
The lucky pair will be getting in the thick of it in Bangladesh with our basket weaving partners Dhaka and Valerian, paper and twine makers Prokritee, applique artisans YWCA, screen printers Saidpur, and jute makers CORR the Jute Works. They then head off to Nepal to meet with ACP (the group behind our felt range) and Mahaguthi Handicrafts (makers of our traditional Nepali products).
The pair will be meeting with talented artisans, developing new designs and witnessing first-hand the craftsmanship behind our beautiful handmade products.
Watch this space for inspiring updates from their time away. #betterworkstories
