Cocobagh Social Business Venture

Together with our fabric bag partners in India, WBC launched the Cocobagh Social Business Venture in 2015.
Based in West Bengal, the Cocobagh project creates training and employment opportunities for the community surrounding our production facility.

Aimed at a community particularly marginalised through cultural or social reasons, Cocobagh focuses on empowering widowed women who have little to no access to training or employment.

By teaching them the male dominated art of stitching, our goal is to support these women by providing them with the basic finances, the skills needed and a route to employment – so they can ultimately afford to send their children to school.
