Maximizing benefit of artisans is its Aim
CORR-The Jute Works is a registered Fair Trade Trust of producing and marketing handicrafts incepted in September 2, 1973. It is also a pioneer member of World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) previously known as IFAT.
The aim was to provide rural marginalized women with work at home. Our goal was not only to rehabilitate them, rather to extend them in sustainable development with their family. CORR-The Jute Works was providing the means of income generation for these groups of women through producing handicraft items made out of a locally available raw material jute and other such as grass, leaf, cane, bamboo, clay. During its last 40 years journey CORR-The Jute Works was trying to upgrade the socio-economic condition of poverty-stricken rural women artisans. The organization has its well-defined mission, vision and philosophy. Now the organization has 23 production areas in the country, all producing a diversified range of handmade jute, grass, leaf and terra-cotta products, which are being exported to different countries of Europe, America, Australia and Asia.
