- 12" W x 13" H (30.5 x 32.5 cm)
- Handmade in & fairly traded from India
Crafted by a women's cooperative in New Delhi, India 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!
