Biswa Bangla

Handcrafted heritage products from Bengal for connoisseurs of the world today..

Biswa Bangla echoes the heartbeat of West Bengal — its art, craft and culture. Our products are authentic hand-crafted items that connect customers and connoisseurs to the lives of Bengal’s people and their myriad expressions. While the products retain the deep-rooted elements of the state’s heritage, those are strategically developed in contemporary design to suit the needs and preferences of today’s customers.

Biswa Bangla reaches out to hundreds of craftsmen and weavers in the state to develop handicraft products that stand out in terms of quality and uniqueness. Our ‘social business’ approach is creating entrepreneurs out of artists at one hand, and bringing back profits to the bottom of the pyramid on the other. This helps sustain the art and craft by creating viable livelihood opportunities.

Visitors to our showrooms are tacitly enlightened on West Bengal’s heritage art and craft forms that help them appreciate the heritage and culture of West Bengal. Our objectives are better achieved when customers learn to appreciate the nuances of Bengal’s heritage through our in-store experience.
 
When you shop at Biswa Bangla showrooms, you not only hold a piece of Bengal in your hands, but reach out to make the lives of thousands of our weavers and craftsmen a little better. We have made a pledge that every penny that we make goes back to them as an appreciation of the wonderful things they create and the joy that they give us.
