The artisans who make our Jute expressions bags are located in the West Bengal region of India. They belong to a nonprofit organization that works to better the standing of women, children, marginalized castes, the mentally and physically handicapped and the disadvantaged. Specializing in jute products, this group works with over 500 artisans living under the poverty line, most of who are women. These artisans get the jute from jute mills, which exist specifically to serve artisans who make jute products.
With the help of Fair Trade, this group can now sponsor welfare projects in both the urban and rural areas of this region. These projects include a short stay home for women and girls, a nursing home for the elderly, a vocational training center and production unit for physically handicapped, English and computer education, and micro-financing.
