Made by: Motif
Motif was founded in 1998 by Jackie, Jharna and two other local investors in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Since then they have grown to two directors, six full time staff members, and 20 – 100 artisans at any given time, touching the lives of many more family and community members.
Motif works with many different artisans, creating all sorts of products. Glass from broken and discarded bottles and bangles are fired into beautiful and colorful recycled glass beads, then strung compactly together to form veritable works of art.
At Motif the women find a safe place where they can earn a living, as well as share with the other women in a familial atmosphere. Through their work, the women are able to provide education to their children and lead a less stressful life. In some cases, the women have become the major source of financial support for their families.
