Meet the Maker
Shortly after arriving in Bangladesh, Samantha Morshed started Hathay Bunano ps, a non-profit organization. Through a local NGO she invited 12 young women to her home in Dhaka and taught them to knit in her spare room. After three weeks practicing knitting they started to work on the first order. With 24 women knitting in Samantha’s spare room every day and more work than they could manage it was time to open their first rural production centers in Narshingdi, about 2 hours drive from the capital Dhaka.
