Through dignified work, Basha provides a sustainable livelihood for women at risk and survivors of trafficking.
At Basha, products are designed to tread lightly on the earth. Each piece is handmade using locally sourced materials including recycled saris, brass, copper and silver.
Home Textiles and Decor
For hundreds of years, women in the Bengal region have stitched their colorful, worn sari’s into blankets- to welcome newborn babies, to keep warm on a chilly night, to cover their beds, and to decorate their homes. At Basha, we modify this beautiful tradition by adding layers for additional warmth, and mixing and matching patterns and colors you will love. We also use other cloths and techniques to modernize these beautiful traditions. If you order up-purposed cloth, please note these are one of a kind. Colours and patterns pictured are not available. We will send you a nice variety of colours and patterns. If you wish to choose your own colours, we will purchase new cloth for you per your specification.
We pull out our special decorations every year. So why not have and gift products that are made completely by hand and give opportunity and hope to the artisans who make them.
Our essentials collection captures the essence of Basha’s heirloom handmade products pared down to the essentials. This creates more employment opportunities for women rebuilding their lives through dignified work. Order 30 or more pieces, and we will discount 20% from your final invoice.
Attire and Accessories
We all love the blankets so much, we wanted more opportunities to enjoy the soft colourful cloth and kantha. What can be better than completely surrounding ourselves with beautiful textiles and accessories!
Our jewellery is handmade from brass, copper and silver wire and sheet, transforming metal into unique earrings, necklaces and bracelets. A 12% will be given for 10-49 of an item and 23% for 50 or more of an item. This will be calculated on your final sales order
