Our new, budget-friendly Wayfarer carpet purse has got a bit of slouch and a whole lot of style! With donated striped upholstery fabric, vegan leather handles and multiple pockets, this is a purse that functions as a tote, as it’s just plain roomy.
Measuring 12″ high, 17″ across and 6″ width, this bag will hold a lot. The zippered tote’s handles are nice and long at 11″ high.
We call this tapestry purse style the “Wayfarer”. The definition of “wayfarer” is someone who travels by foot. And that’s how our refugee moms escaped the dangerous situations they were in. They had to travel, often for long periods by foot, some for days through the jungle. As with all our products, this tapestry carpet purse is more than just a fashion item. It’s part of the story of hope and finding home – the story of the refugee women who work with us.
Your purchase of the Wayfarer carpet bag supports our work projects for women in poverty! Our mission is to give women opportunities to grow in skills, earn needed income and experience the dignity of work.
