Recycled Sari Pot Holders
Pot holder or trivets made from colourful recycled cotton saris in Bangladesh. Made by artisan weavers at an enterprise which was set up to provide alternative employment to former sex workers. The stories of these women involve abuse, victimisation, trauma, and pain.
The small workshops that create these products are managed by the not-for-profit, Prokritee, who sources the finest work from small villages and co-ops in Bangladesh who would normally not have the means to trade in this manner. Prokritee is a guaranteed member of the World Fair Trade Organisation. One of their main missions is to develop the social and economic capacity of poor, rural, disadvantaged women in Bangladesh by creating productive employment opportunities and sustainable linkages to world market.
We love that each of these pot holders are completely unique and have their own personality and history. Please note the pot holder you receive will most likely be different than the ones pictured here.
