Original and playful hand-crafted jute “word-bags” made by skillful traditional handicraft workers of southwest Bangladesh.
The beautiful and playful hand-crafted jute “word-bags” from The Jacksons are a joyous outcome of the design collaboration between Louise Jackson and the skillful traditional handicraft workers of Southwest Bangladesh. The colors of the bags reflect the vibrant local hues from earthy red to electric pink and lime green – colors to enliven any trip to the gym, beach or shops. The 100% locally-grown jute bags are light, flexible and durable. This project aims to empower local women in Bangladesh and through the income it provides improve their access to health and education. Louise visits regularly and has seen at first hand the real benefits it provides.
