Rangta returns for the third time this Eid
Meye network returns with Rangta, a unique fair celebrating passion and entrepreneurship. With the slogan ‘Shahosh Ranga Shokher Jhapi’ which means ‘A bundle of passion colored with courage’, this year’s ‘Rangta’ will take place at Dhanmondi on the 17th and 18th of June.
Like always, the fair will be held under the entrepreneurship of Hoothaat. The fair will bring a colossal variety of unique local products which will include new and old books, food, handwoven cotton sarees, Jamdni, Katan, handmade jewelries, handpainted dresses, authentic cosmetics, tribal food and clothes, designer clothes with matching bags and shoes.
Meye (Bangla for Girl), is a non-profitable, voluntary, and organic network of Bengali speaking women, advocating women’s solidarity, empowerment and leadership. Founded in 2011, Meye has created a community of over five thousand women to date. Meye strives to sustain a non-judgmental environment for women from all walks of life, enabling them to brainstorm together in order to generate ideas, and setting up a platform to implement them.
In last five years it has become a trustworthy support system of over 5,000 women in home and abroad. Meye is a true believer of the idea that to empower women there is no alternative to financial freedom.
This vision led Meye to organize the first fair in October of 2013 with a handful of fresh entrepreneurs from the network, which turned out to be successful beyond expectations. This success led Meye to create a new group dedicated for online market Hoothaat.
Hoothaat is not just any profit centered online shopping group. Rather, common grounds for passion and principle is the driving force of this group which is dedicated to operating a network of innovative entrepreneurship through qualitative filtering and friendly interactions among buyers and sellers, bringing quality products that are all made in Bangladesh.
This is the reason why when our markets are flooded with exported products Rangta stands tall with its unique and creative products. Even though Meye is a women only network, Hoothaat and Rangta welcome people of all genders.
