BBC Profiles Bangladeshi Women Making Diesel Sweeties Toys

Over at the BBC there’s a profile of Hathay Bunano, a company that hires women in remote Bangladeshi villages at fair rates to make hand-knitted goods for western companies — including Red Robot plush toys for the webcomic Diesel Sweeties.

At the moment the women are working on finger puppets of animals, rattles that look like biscuits and large, soft, red-square robots.

“When we first saw one we just started laughing,” the supervisor Mazimat Poli Begum says. “We had never seen anything like this before in our village, we don’t even have a word for it.”
