Recycled Sari Flower
|Article number:||Made in Bangladesh|
Fine sari material finds new life in the creation of this flower from artisan group Hajiganj. Crafted with bendable wire, this flower is easily wrapped or maneuvered into the shape of your choosing. Because each piece of fabric comes from a real recycled sari, no two flowers are entirely alike.
Who Made It: Hajiganj works with marginalized people in Bangladesh's Nilphamari District. The group is located in one of the poorest areas in Bangladesh, where people are mostly dependent on hiring out to rich farmers who pay very low wages. Benefits to artisans include profit distribution, a producer security fund, medical allowance and skill development. Hajiganj was established in 1998 in the village of the same name, in northwestern Bangladesh. Initially the women artisans made baskets from kaisa grass, later adding a crochet unit. Ten Thousand Villages has been working with Hajiganj since 2000.
