We know you love our brand Bhalo and their trendy collection, but we thought why not introduce you to the women who help create the brand…from the designer Jessica Priemus to the women artisans that work to create the brand! Bhalo is a fair trade design label that aims to create desirable fashion whilst empowering disadvantaged people, especially women, allowing them to work their way out of poverty.
The cotton is hand loomed and hand embroidered by women in rural Bangladesh, not only giving them much needed employment and training, but providing them with simple things that we take for granted – education/childcare for their children, basic healthcare, and most of all, dignity. Fashion ComPassion and Bhalo opposes human exploitation and feel everyone should be given the right to fair employment terms, and given a decent price for their work, Would you expect the same?
