The Tribal Crafts-Bangladesh

Mary Milon Chisim checks me out...

Welcome to Indigenious World of Bangladesh....The Tribal Crafts handicrafts shop

In Dhaka, my favorite place to go and shop is the The Tribal Crafts shop in Banani. At Tribal Crafts you can find many reasonable items made by indigenious and matrilineal Garo, Chakma, Santal, and Munpuri women among others and the proceeds go to directly to the women rather than as overpriced products through NGO middle people. I have bought many of my urnas (shawls), ganna (wraps), wall-hangings, and gifts from this shop. In the brochure below, you can read about many of their products and see some of them in my photos. Please visit this shop! (and Mom please send more $$)...

The shop is located at NEW ADDRESS (just adjacent to Khilket over-bridge):

Shop no.1, Rajuk Trade Centre
Nikunjo- 2, Dhaka-1229.
