Country Boats of
Bangladesh

Traditional Boat Building is an oral
tradition, the oldest craft of Bangladesh,
not being taught to young carpenter. In
the light of this thought, we came up
to partner with GTZ and Mr Yves Marre,
the person who actually trailed this
lost tradition for years. A seminar
and exhibition were held, and a yearly
calendar came out featuring all those extinct
traditional boats, design thoughts behind them
and sketches of each.
