Aarong
Aarong in Dhaka Bangladesh

Arguably Bangladesh’s most famous brand, Aarong features clothing and home décor items among its constantly evolving inventory. This ‘village fair’ began in 1978 and quickly grew into one of the country’s most beloved and renowned brands. A fair trade ethos is embraced and all profits are channelled back into Aarong’s support programs. With seven Dhaka locations, including a shiny new outlet at Jamuna Future Park, it’s easy to take home a piece of authentic Bangladesh folk craft!

Traditional patterns and materials are mated with a modern sensibility to create products that are attractive, vibrant and timeless. Choose from clothes, bags, shoes, toys, rugs and much more. A limited collection of nakshi kantha items including women’s wear and wall hangings is available. Nakshi kantha is a traditional embroidered quilt made of discarded clothing, but Aarong’s versions are stitched with new material. Designs, however, are very much based on vintage motifs.
