Sewn by Safiya
With donated velvet royal blue upholstery fabric, vegan leather handles and multiple pockets, this is a lovely, elegant Carpet purse that is stylish, practical and just plain roomy. It also features a gold key clasp so your keys won’t disappear! And as an extra gift, there’s a blue velvet coin purse to match.
Measuring 12″ high, 17″ across and 6″ width, this victorian-style carpet bag will hold a lot. The zippered tote’s handles are 8″ 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 vintage look 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. Learn more about our project at personagratagoods.com
