Bangladesh is a beautiful assortment of diversity reflected in our clothing, food, lifestyle, music, books etc. This diversity is so rich and diverse that an attempt to capture it in a single platform was never made. ‘Rongbahar’ is that sincere attempt made by few enthusiastic women.
Rongbahar uses an online marketplace model to capture regional variation and heritage of Bangladesh. It connects rural artisans & designers directly to the global customers and thereby increases their livelihood, help them create/promote their skills and thus preserve our culture and traditions. Rongbahar believes this journey will not simply assist rural artisans but also help customers around the globe to discover and buy true unique Bangladeshi products.
