    These fun Christmas stockings will bring a smile to the faces of children and grown-ups alike. They are individually handmade from recycled sari cloth. Choose from our Reds & Greens collection for a traditional festive look or add some spice to your Christmas with a stocking from our multicoloured range. You will receive one randomly picked from our selection, so you can enjoy an exciting surprise when it arrives! These Christmas stockings are produced by the same project in Bangladesh that makes our kantha quilts. Each one has a contrasting fabric cuff and neat rows of handstitching give a lightly quilted effect. The word 'kantha' means 'patched cloth' and careful repairs are characteristic of this traditional technique. Your purchase helps survivors of sex trafficking rebuild their lives through secure, safe and dignified employment.

  • “My life has changed so much. I've forgotten all my past and I am proud that I am doing a respectable job. My daughter will have a good education and she won’t have to go through what I have been through” – Jahanara, quilter

    Basha is a social enterprise that helps victims of sex trafficking in Bangladesh leave the streets and build a new life making kantha quilts from recycled saris. Training and counselling are provided and children attend the on-site nursery school while their mothers work. As beautiful products emerge from discarded cloth, broken lives are made whole, stitch by stitch.
