Coloring isn't child's play! Relax, exercise your creativity and create custom color artwork for your space with this coloring poster, featuring a hand-drawn tree design. Women in three Bangladesh workshops worked together to create the finished product - including the handmade cotton paper, screen printing, bamboo hanger, and handmade paper box. Meaning "nature" in Bengali, fair trade organization Prokritee supports over 1500 rural artisans who use renewable materials - from recycled sari to natural fibers - to create inspired product designs. The income women earn through employment with Prokritee helps them secure proper housing, adequate food and education for their children. Located mainly in rural areas across Bangladesh, workshops offer safe working conditions and source locally available materials, so that families can stay together in their home villages, rather than migrating to urban areas in search of jobs.
