We work with brave women. They’ve stood up to soldiers, trekked hundreds of miles on foot, faced hunger and deprivation, yet still they go on. Life hasn’t been easy for the refugee women who sew with us. But time and time again, they show bravery and determination when faced with challenges.
This Blue Velvet & Gold cork clutch wallet uses one of our most popular fabrics and was inspired by these refugee ladies and designed in part by you, our customers! We’re using deadstock upholstery remnants plus cork, a vegan leather alternative, to create these beautiful wallet clutches. Each clutch measures 9″x 6″ and has the word “Brave” on a cork label. The closure is a metal YKK gold zipper. The interior features two card slots. Plus, the Cork Clutch wristlet comes with a detachable cork & fabric handle.
HOW DURABLE IS CORK? It won’t crack or crumble, in fact, the quality and suppleness of cork fabric products can be compared to that of leather goods. Unlike leather, it’s natural, water repellent, scratch and stain resistant. It is also very easy to maintain and clean: water and soap will do the trick!
Your purchase supports our refugee women empowerment program in Charlotte, North Carolina. Thanks for being part of these ladies’ stories.
