Bangladesh has been a priority of Traidcraft since it started, and this tour takes us to producer groups who featured in the first ever catalogue. It is a beautiful country of friendly people, fertile farmland, winding waterways and a fascinating architectural heritage. As well as sampling the tastes, sights and sounds that distinguish Bangladeshi culture you will have an opportunity to meet the producers behind fair trade in Bangladesh and visit development projects that address the problems caused by war and flooding. You are unlikely to find a tour that visits so many different fair trade organisations and gives you the opportunity to learn and enjoy so much.


Since the birth of the fair trade organisation Prabartana in 1986, our tour guide Shamim, and his colleagues have been assisting fabric producers and organic farmers to get a fair deal. Their sister organisation Ajiyer was set up in 2002 to give visitors an opportunity to learn about Bangladeshi culture, crafts and biodiversity from the people. Himself a fabric designer, Shamim is currently President of the National Crafts Council of Bangladesh and has a deep knowledge of and passion for his country.
