The cultural heritage in Bangladesh has been sustained mostly by the handicrafts and cottage industries of the country. The extensive use of pure silk and attractive designs are the most predominant features of Bangladeshi handicrafts.

These handicrafts are composite in nature and have evolved over the centuries assimilating influences of Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, and Islam. They also encompass the cultural diversity of many social groups of Bangladesh.

Intending to limelight the glorious handicrafts and cottage industries of Bangladesh, a handicraft organization established by a group of spiritually young students of Jahangirnagar University named 'KARU', have organized an exhibition of traditional handicrafts.

The five-day exhibition titled 'A journey to traditional handicrafts' has been inaugurated by the Jute and Textile Minister Mr. Abdul Latif Siddique.

The exhibition manifests Bangladeshi culture in various forms including, music, dance & drama, art & craft, folklores & folktales, languages & literature, philosophy & religion, festivals & celebrations and also in a distinct cuisine and culinary tradition, said the organizers.
