Prokritee is a fair trade company in Bangladesh supporting over 1,500 artisans in rural areas. Prokritee promotes participation, cooperation and teamwork among their artisans.
Prokritee's high quality, unique kantha blankets are handmade by women who were former sex workers that suffered abuse, victimization, trauma, and pain. The production centre was set up as an alternative for these women.
Old saris are stacked on each other and stitched together using a straight running stitch. Each blanket is unique in colour and pattern depending on the recycled saris available at the time they were made.
