The Jacksons

The Jacksons' jute bags have become a joyous design collaboration with the skilful handicraft workers in south-west Bangladesh, creating not only the beautiful and durable hand-crafted jute “word-bags”  but also humorous and colourful placemats and beaded purses.

It has grown from a workforce of less than 100 women to over 1000 artisans in South West Bangladesh, an area where there are few job opportunities. All of these teams are predominantly made up of women, who are paid directly giving them independence and status, empowering them to make decisions within the family. 

The Jacksons is continually looking at ways to reduce its carbon footprint, and makes every effort to ensure that responsibility and sustainability are at the core of its decision making.
