Bangladesh has carved a niche for itself in the hearts of jute lovers which is quite evident from the fact that now, Tesco, the global retailer giant has started obtaining jute made shopping bags from Sonali Aansh Group, located in Dhaka.

In order to promote environment friendly jute products more aggressive in the world market, Tesco has started this move.

Sonali Aansh Group is mainly engaged in manufacturing of jute yarn, fabric as well as exports of products like high end jute bags, floor mat, decorative cloth, cushion covers, curtains, espadrilles and shopping bags.

Mr Nurul Islam Patwari, Managing Director of Sonali Aansh Group informed Fibre2fashion that only after meeting compliance requirements, Sonali could get hold of such big order.

Mr Patwari was happy as this is a very big achievement for Sonali. Jute bags produced by Sonali Group, are currently being used in the Tesco stores of Poland, Japan and Korea. The Company has exported over 7 lakh pieces of jute bags to a number of buyers including Tesco.

Available statistics show that exports of jute goods registered a down trend since 2005-06. In the last fiscal, exports of such items plunged by mere 0.77 percent to $318.3 million from $320.8 million a year ago. In July-August period of the current year, the exports rebounded and registered a 2. 87 percent growth, to reach $54.50 million from $52.98 million compared to similar period earlier year.

In order to discourage the usage of plastic bags, big retailers have joined hands with their respective Government to create and increase demand for this eco friendly products.
