Layered loops of brass form a fun, teardrop shaped earring. Brass will oxidize over time. Approximately 2″ long. Handmade by a fair trade artisan group in India that creates avenues of employment for the economically disadvantaged.

Patchwork Clutch (India)
This hard shell clutch is covered in assorted colorful fabrics with a floral design. It features a Kantha style stitching detail across the clutch, and has a zipper closure and inside zipper pocket. Measures 10"x 5". Fine stitching is the specialty of these artisans, many who are tailors by profession. The products are made from locally sourced cotton fabrics, many times created by our other artisan groups (e.g. wood block printed fabrics). Many of the artisans start working when they are young and full of energy. The organization aims to guide them and help them achieve a better future. They are given training on stitching, the specific art that allows them to work with the group for a long time.
