Antique Sari Kisslock Coin Purse
Simply spectacular! Who can resist this super-cute mini coin purse? A recycled sari textile is used on the front and black cotton canvas on the reverse side. Make a difference by supporting women in India.
Crafted by a women's cooperative in New Delhi that creates purses from antique saris that would otherwise be burned to recover their gold or silver content. By putting old saris to use in new handbags, the original craftsmanship is preserved and each bag becomes a work of art -- and the women of the cooperative earn badly-needed income to care for their children and households. Expect each bag to vary and be a bit unique -- just like the women who once wore the original sari!
- Brown, Burgundy, Green, Purple, or Turquoise
- Canvas and 100% recycled silk
- "Kisslock" / pinch-style clasp
- 3.5" dia (8.9 cm)
- Handmade in and fairly traded from India
Created to help women worldwide gain economic security for themselves and their families by earning fair wages for their handiwork, Global Girlfriend sources women-made, fair-trade imported, eco-friendly products. By supporting long-term partnerships with the artisans, it fosters equal employment opportunities, healthy and safe working conditions, technical assistance, and development strategies to help reduce poverty, one community at a time. Become a "Global Girlfriend" and help build a brighter future for girlfriends around the globe!
