Local cotton charisma has fascinated Bangladeshi youth

Dec '05
Traditional woven cotton has hit the fashion bazaars of Bangladesh as young women in the country switch to homespun fabrics and dresses designed at home.

Affected by poverty and prone to natural calamities, preparation for the last month's Eid al-Fitr festival saw people overcrowding malls of the capital city Dhaka hoping to get new designs, allowed under Islamic traditions.

Bangladeshi youth is responsive to fashion trends and wants comfy clothes as well, opines Shaheen Ahmed, Director of fashion house Anjan's.

Local fashion artists have correctly gauged pulse of the young generation who prefer hand-made cottons, and hence they are pushing local textiles rather than designs and fabrics from neighbouring countries like India.

Homespun fabric has been a tradition, which had been eclipsed in recent times by cheap, imported synthetic and machine-made textiles. But nearly one million weavers have recovered themselves.

Shall we say, thanks to the changing tastes of the young & the hip generation of the country?
