Emma Watson stunned onlookers in Bangladesh by trying her hand at sewing and weaving machines while visiting the factory where her eco-friendly clothing line is made.

The Harry Potter actress traveled to Dhaka and Bajshahi last month and visited workers at Swallows, the Fair Trade firm producing the range she is releasing with fashion label People Tree.

And Watson jumped at the chance to get involved – she waded barefoot into a river to help dye natural yarns and fabric and attempted to operate several textile machines.

The kind-hearted star also made a stop at a local school, where she taught a math class to young students and handed out gifts.
