The journey of our bags start in Bangladesh, and continue on in the hands of their newfound owners.
Our Core Philosophy
Promoting & Embracing Cultural Diversity
At the heart of our design and manufacturing ethos lies our belief in collaborating with and promoting local artisans through “mono-zukuri”, which begins from the discovery of natural, raw materials in developing countries.
UNCOVERING HIDDEN POTENTIAL
We are commited to building ethical, sustainable business practices. In our manufacturing process, we make efforts to identify and use materials and production methods that suit each country. In Bangladesh, we use leather and jute for our bags, while in Nepal, high quality cashmere and silk are utilised for our stoles.
COLLABORATING WITH LOCAL ARTISANS
We recognise and celebrate the often over-looked, but nevertheless unparalleled artistry of our artisans from developing countries. We work in tandem with them in the crafting process and provide them with a platform to let their voices be heard. Having ownership and a say in their craft is something we value at Motherhouse because we believe in our artisans and their dreams.
DIMINISHING GLOBAL BORDERS
Our products are unique, heartwarming and designed to be your lifelong partners. We aim to illuminate the beauty of diversity, in terms of both the raw materials that we use as well as the outstanding local talent that we are showcasing, to the global marketplace. Motherhouse is shifting the spotlight to developing countries, and bringing awareness to their untapped potential.
All our products are handcrafted in our own factories in Bangladesh and workshops in Nepal, Sri Lanka and Indonesia.
We believe in the philosophy that our workers should feel as if our factories are their “second home”. We aim to build and create an environment where they feel safe and happy.
