Basha exists to provide secure, dignified employment for women at risk and survivors of trafficking.
Each woman’s story varies, but for each her circumstances have put her at high risk of harm or resulted in her exploitation. Through the recently established Friends of Basha foundation, Basha also works with employees’ children ensuring the cycle of poverty and victimisation is broken.
Basha hopes that all who work with them will be inspired to dream new dreams and reach ever-increasing standards of excellence, and so, Basha provides ongoing mentoring, training, education, support and encouragement to each of their artisans.
Basha’s products celebrate and enrich both Bangladesh and the world it’s a part of. Their designs aim to reflect the heritage and craftsmanship so rich in this region. From sourcing materials through to production and movement of products, Basha tries to make a positive contribution to the local economy and leave a light tread on the earth.
