FOLKDAYS Nº 186
ASK Handicrafts support artisans in very remote areas in Bangladesh. Usually the artisans produce the baskets additionally to subsistence farming. Today, about 2500 women and 100 men are producing baskets for ASK. The size of the artisan groups makes the production even during harvest season reliable and stable. All materials that are being used for their basket production are natural and indigenous to the area such as palm leaves, sea grass, hogla and jute.
