Aarong is the handicraft-marketing arm of BRAC (Bangladesh Rural Advancement Committee), the largest NGO in Bangladesh. Aarong means a village fair, where craftsman of all trades exhibit and sale their traditional handicrafts. It helps vitalize the traditional craftsmanship and find a wider market for their products nationally and internationally. Aarong products include pottery, crafts on brass, natural fibers, wood, leather, woven cloth and silk products, jewelry and a wide variety of candles. Nakshi Kantha and rickshaw paintings are very special and famous items.

Aarong serves through 13 retail stores across the country and employs more than 65,000 rural Bangadeshi artisans, of which 85 per cent are women. Aarong believes in setting high standards for the quality and craftsmanship of its products and designs. It sets the trend of blending the traditional with the contemporary, which revitalized consumers’ interest in Bangladeshi products and designs. At Aarong, we aspire to bring all that we love about Bangladesh to customers around the world. In 2006, and again in 2012, a number of Aarong products received the UNESCO Award of Excellence for Handicrafts. As a fair trade organization, Aarong’s products are exported to fair trade companies across Asia, Europe and North America.
