Why you'll love it.A beautiful handmade zipped pouch by the talented artisans at Kanimar. The delicate hand-embroidered design has been inspired by traditional rangoli patterns of Southern India. This is a truly unique little purse which makes an ideal elegant accessory for your most precious things. Sharing its story makes a wonderful conversation topic too. Because of the delicate stitching, please sponge clean only.
Who made it?
These pouches are made by Irula Tribal women who live in very modest villages close to Mamallapuram in Tamil Nadu. Having recently been taught embroidery skills, they have discovered an inspiring talent for design. They create their own unique designs for every product which they complete them with an exquisite attention to detail.
How do you give back?
The artisans live in extremely poor communities with little or no other source of income, which makes your purchase very important. These ladies are very proud and dignified women who are determined to produce high-quality work and provide for their children. They are trained by Kanimar and are paid generously for every product they make.
Each purchase helps more mothers learn new skills and earn a living to support their families. With your support, Ethihub is also helping some Irula children with their school fees, enabling better opportunities for the next generation.
