This practical oval-shaped bowl has been hand crafted using recycled newspaper, creating a multi-coloured effect.
Supplied by Prokritee (formerly MCC) who have been working in Bangladesh since 1972, starting and operating small cottage industries in rural areas around the country. There are about 700 people (about 95 per cent are women) who are involved in making a variety of handicrafts and they strive to develop unique fair trade products.
The name 'Prokritee' means 'nature' in Bangla. The organisation aims to create employment for disadvantaged rural women. It tends to work with women who are head of their household (often widowed), and who are landless, with few or no assets.
It sets up and runs cottage industries in rural areas as well as providing marketing and design assistance to eight enterprises. The aim is that the groups become strong enough to become independent of Prokritee. The Prokritee group members get much needed income, plus a range of social benefits.
