This fair trade ‘Preserve Art’ Embroidered Clutch is a part of our Earth day collection. In celebration of Earth Day 2011, we will contribute 25% of retail price of this clutch to Evergreen, a Canadian charity whose objective is to make cities more livable. By empowering communities, by providing innovative resources and by transforming educational values, Evergreen is bringing communities and nature together for the benefit of both.
This is a hand-embroidered 100% cotton product. The material of this clutch is printed with traditional wood block printing method and coloured with natural dyes. Besides, being a 100% natural dyed product, this clutch is a socially-made product too. This clutch is made by women artisans from a cooperative in the Kutch region of India. After a massive earthquake in 2001, these artisans are generating income by making hand-embroidered products and rebuilding their community and their families.
By purchasing this clutch you are supporting the environment, helping improving the lives of the artisans, and helping us help Evergreen in their endeavours in improving the health of our cities – now and for the future.
