HANDMADE IN BANGLADESH
We hope you like our collection of unique purses in many colors and with various beautiful patterns. The purse measures H9 x W14 cm and has a different pattern inside and outside.
The purse is made of three layer vintage cotton sarees. It is hand stitched with uniform visible stitches, called kantha stitches. Kantha is a special way of embroidery and is a centuries-long tradition originally from Bangladesh and India. The wallet is sewn based on global fair trade principles and took about an hour to sew by hand.
When you buy a purse, you help ensure proper, meaningful and dignified jobs for marginalized women in Bangladesh. The women work for a socially responsible company, where they receive a fair salary, annual bonus (dividend) and professional training.

The purse is made from vintage sarees, which means the product has a history.
The saris have previously been worn by women in Bangladesh. They have now been upcycled and given a new life. This means that the pouches are not perfect and may have minor stains and patches on them.
Likewise, there will never be two products that are exactly alike, because the products are handmade. We hope that you will appreciate the small features of the products and their history as much as we do - and we hope that you will enjoy them for many years to come.
We recommend that you wash your product as little as possible to protect the product and our planet:
- Machine wash at max. 30°C
- Please use a gentle washing program
- Can be ironed at medium temperature
- Do not bleach, tumble dry or dry clean
