[WATCH] Village that makes Bangladeshi imitation jewellery

If you are buying an imitation jewellery from anywhere in Bangladesh, it’s most likely to have been made in a small village named Bhakurta in Savar.

About 10,000 villagers of this village have been making imitation jewellery since the nineties and now this village produces around 90 percent of costume jewellery of the country. What they sell for just 100 taka can end up costing Tk 2,000 at a city shop.

Watch the video for the insight on the imitation jewellery makers.
