CORR-The Jute Works is a registered Fair Trade Trust of producing and marketing handicrafts incepted in September 2, 1973.  It is also a pioneer member of World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) previously known as IFAT. After the War of Independence in 1971, aiming at ameliorating the plights of the war widows, war victims and marginalized rural women, who became dependent on relief and sympathy, CORR (Christian Organization for Relief and Rehabilitation), now Caritas Bangladesh, carried out a program of reconstruction.  In August 1972, CORR received a letter from CARE New York office.  One Design Firm Lesley & Co of New York had offered to help with the development of the handicrafts in Bangladesh.  In January 1973 a young designer, Louisa Brooke came to Dhaka for a six week period of observation.
