Sophistication just took a turn for the fun in a luxurious accessory sure to make others "green" with envy! Olive green satin is playfully decorated with circular cuts of mother-of-pearl and luminescent chartreuse-green bead work, and provides perfect storage for coins, cards, and other small items. Handmade by the artisans of Au Lac, a fair-trade organization in Vietnam founded to bring jobs to poor women living in Hanoi and the surrounding rural areas. These women are especially gifted in the traditional art of embroidery and beading, and their skilled craftsmanship shines in this accessory fit for a queen!

Coin purse zips closed and measures 4" H (10.2 cm) x 5" W (12.7 cm). Handmade in and fairly traded from Vietnam.

Training and assistance are available to the women who work with Au Lac, giving them the opportunity to build their understanding of international markets and demands, design, quality control, and production management.
