Maison Bengal

Maison Bengal is a social enterprise founded in 2004 to provide a decent and reliable source of income for some of the poorest people in Bangladesh, with a particular focus on mothers and young women.


The project works with local fair trade organisations to set up training in handicraft production in the most marginalised communities in the area. Maison Bengal works with individual groups of women within these communities, using locally grown natural materials which are shaped into a range of products using traditional hand-weaving skills.


Maison Bengal now works with over 2,000 women throughout Bangladesh, enabling them to work in their home environment and financially support their families.
