Jatra in Dhaka Bangladesh

Jatra is a highly creative enterprise that sells an incredible range of art, fashion and lifestyle gear. All of the store’s merchandise is made in Bangladesh and characterised by a combination of rich colours, artistic flair and folk art whimsy. The company’s goal is to imbue its products with the vibrancy of Bangladesh’s people and culture.

Jatra, which in Bengal means ‘journey’, began life as a series of spontaneous exhibitions in Dhaka’s Banani neighbourhood. Success quickly followed and led to a permanent shop space opening in 2000. Jatra’s talented designers and artists come from varied backgrounds but all want to promote Bangladeshi culture through their work, which incorporates indigenous materials and eco-friendly production methods.
