Tulsi Crafts is a label for high quality fashion and interior accessories, ethically made by hand in Bangladesh. The story of Tulsi Crafts is about respect for the people who make our products.
We offer stylish, quirky and fair products. High quality in design and execution is very important to us. With Tulsi Crafts you’ll find that one special product. Made with love and attention, you see the hand of the maker in the embroidery or weaving.
You can see the collaboration between The Netherlands and Bangladesh in the crisp and simple designs that, together with the craftsmanship from Bangladesh, for a unique collection of products. We choose to work with artisans specialised in handicrafts, because weaving and embroidery is still common in the countryside of Bangladesh, so we can create employment there. Our goal is to empower the women who make our products.
From stylish chic silk to bold and bright cotton, our hand embroidered throws and scarves are made from vintage saris. Nothing is thrown away in Bangladesh. Each throw and each blanket is unique, the wide range of colours and patterns always offers something that suits you.
For the production of our sari throws and scarves we collaborate with an organisation active in Bengal, both in India and in Bangladesh. Bengal is the home of kantha. This organisation gets women out of forced prostitution and assists them with building a new life for themselves. Some of the women make kantha scarves and blankets for Tulsi Crafts. Stitch by stitch they build a new life, while giving a new life to vintage saris as well. You can see the love, attention and time they’ve devoted to their kantha work.
You can use these quilted throws for many different purposes: as a bed cover, a throw on the sofa, or in your garden, a blanket to take to the beach or for a picnic!
