Jute Economy Revolution of Bangladesh- JERB, is out to popularise clothes made from jute. JERB’s president Amir Hossain Rangan believes this will encourage university students about products and clothes made from jute. The university students who are currently associated with Rangan belong to from various backgrounds like textile engineering, fashion designing, fine arts and many more. He feels that if the creative young minds are not involved, we may not be able to move ahead in the increasingly competitive world market.
JERB held a discussion on “Global warming, problem, solution and our eco-friendly jute,” at the capital’s Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy on 30 August, 2019. Here Rangan expressed his optimism regarding jute, its many uses and involving young minds in this sector with the right amount of assistance from the government. Tamanna Nusrat Bubly, MP and member of the Parliamentary Standing Committee at the Textiles and Jute Ministry, was present as chief guest, and promised her wholehearted support.
Amir Hossain Rangan described his work of 17 years and mentioned that jute is not just for making gurneys and other such products. “We are trying to highlight this matter. We want jute made clothes to be known and used throughout the world,” said Rangan. He is expecting to hold a fashion show at the capital in the coming month of December. In the meantime, JERB will be working as the platform to unify university students who want to move the just sector further.
