Bibi Russell, the astounding model who rose to stardom in the late 70s and early 80s, now works to establish a cause that is much closer to her heart: the plight of the hand woven textile industries and their workers in her native Bangladesh. With the set up in 1995 of Bibi Productions, she has given the Bangladeshi weavers and artisans the golden opportunity to utilize their considerable skills and talents to achieve economic survival and to build towards a prosperous future. Her work has been internationally recognized having received among others, the 'Honorary Fellowship' of the London Institute in 1999, title of 'Designer for Development' by the UNESCO in 1999, the title 'Artist for Peace' by the UNESCO in 2001 and the Peace Prize 2004 by the United Nations Associations of Spain.
