Our products from Bangladesh are woven from sea grass and date palm. The sea grass is wrapped with date palm leaves, that are abundant in the region. The average time to weave a basket is about a day and a half. These are handcrafted items so sizes are approximate and colors will vary.
Weaving these baskets allows our artisans to earn enough Prosperity Wages® income to become entrepreneurs: eventually leading to financial independence. Through our Graduate From ProvertyTM model, artisans “tip” from poverty to prosperity in about three years time. We know an artisan is ready to graduate when they begin to spend less time on their weaving and more time running their businesses.
