The NGO Friendship’s city centre pop-up store is currently hosting an exhibition of Bangladeshi handicrafts, including replicas of the wooden boats that were the only means of transport for people and goods on the country’s rivers down through the ages. Built to scale, they required the same construction techniques as their life-size models. Some of these boats are offered for sale, as are other Bangladeshi handicrafts such as jewellery and textiles.
