The Jacksons London
The beautiful and durable hand-crafted jute “word-bags” from The Jacksons are a joyous outcome of the design collaboration between Louise and the skilful traditional handicraft workers in south-west Bangladesh.
The partnership began in 2012 and The Jacksons are now working closely with over 5000 men and women in Bangladesh, in an area where there are few job opportunities for women and helping to overcome poverty and improve women’s social standing. The wonderful women who make the bags have access to free medical care and schools. The women are paid directly too which gives them more power to make decisions within the families. Louise visits regularly to see at first hand the real benefits.
