Who Made It: Your purchase helps extremely poor artisans in remote areas in Bangladesh struggling to sustain a craft-based livelihood. Where few other options for income exist, generations of skilled Bangladeshi artisans are able to earn an income from craft, preserving this country's fine hand-crafting heritage.

Since 1980, SERRV International has partnered with rural artisans in Bangladesh, providing a long-term trading partnership and interest-free advance payment for our orders. Through sales of their products, 1500 rural artisans in 30 cooperatives are able to improve their skills and production capacity while working from home. Over 90% of these artisans are women, with employment enabling income for widows, healthcare for new mothers and education for girls. Self-reliance is encouraged through a savings plan and improved sanitation, and distribution of saplings to promote reforestation.

SERRV international is one of the first fair trade organizations in the world. They began their mission by helping displaced European refugees trade their handcrafts for income after the Second World War. Since then, SERRV has extended their reach to 24 countries worldwide, working to empower over 8,000 artisans and farmers every year
