While nearly every business sector in Bangladesh has been hit by the fallouts of the coronavirus pandemic, handicrafts have continued faring well in the global market.

With exports beginning in 1980, such products which are made entirely by hand or by using only simple tools have come to create an international market of more than $20 million, as per the Export Promotion Bureau's (EPB) estimate of fiscal 2019-20.

This fiscal year, manufacturers and exporters have already attained half that figure in just four months to October, bagging $10.84 million from foreign countries. In comparison, it was $7.34 million in the same period last fiscal.
