Product story

In Bangladesh, skilled jewellery-making and metal-working is seen as a man’s job. By training women in this skill, we hope to increase employees’ confidence and their standing in the local community.

It takes around three months for our artisans to be trained in the skills they need to make Basha jewellery. Once qualified the artisan meticulously handcrafts all component parts, cutting, drilling hammering and handshaping metal, or handweaving textile elements, and then carefully assembles them to form the finished piece.

This process can take anything from thirty minutes to four hours depending upon the complexity and size of the design. Jewellery materials are sourced locally wherever possible and textile detailing is often made using recycled or repurposed sari cloth.
