MEET THE ARTISAN
PROKRITEE
Located in: Bangladesh
A community-based nonprofit organization, Prokritee supports dignified work for more than 2,000 women in rural, underserved communities of Bangladesh. Many of these women are single mothers, refugees, survivors of domestic violence, indigenous peoples, people who are living with disabilities, and often the sole providers for their families. They practice a basket weaving technique that is local to the area and locally source raw materials including recycled iron and sustainable holga leaves. To create these baskets, they clean the leaves, set them to dry, spray them with water, and carefully weave them around a frame. Each piece takes an average of 15 to 17 hours to create from start to finish, with two artisans working together. Through this work, they earn fair wages, support their families, have access to essential training and healthcare, and can send their children to school.
