Antique Sari Kisslock Clutch

Item # 41621
No longer available

Simply spectacular! The majestic beauty of vintage saris reawakens the splendor of a gentler era, when loveliness of dress and custom was as cherished as the usefulness of personal items.

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. This allows the women of the cooperative to earn badly-needed income to care for their children and households. Each bag is unique -- just like the woman who once wore the original sari!

  • Blue, Pink, or Purple
  • Silk saris & canvas
  • Kisslock pinch-style clasp
  • 3.75" H x 6.5" W (9.5 x 16.5 cm)
  • Handmade in and fairly traded from India
