About Us

Artisan Hut was founded in February 2002 by Monju Haque Who believes that fair/ethical trade can play a vital role to reduce the poverty levels of Bangladesh. Artisan Hut is specialized in hand weaving, creating unique and exclusive ethical women's wear and home textiles. We are focused on fair trade and environmental preservation. Our throws and cushion covers are woven with handlooms using organic cotton yarns, to create unique and eco-friendly products.
