Eco-fabulous! 100% handmade from buriti palm fiber, a renewable resource from the palm known as the "Tree of Life." The palm fibers are responsibly harvested in the proper season so the trees aren't damaged or destroyed.
Artisans from northeastern Brazil create this chic bag in a very labor-intensive process. It's about 13 1/2" long and 9 1/2" tall (excluding handle). Fully lined with 2 magnetic snaps for a secure close.
The fair trade supplier of this bag is a social enterprise working to empower women in northeastern Brazil. Through fair wages and long-term relationships, the group creates economic opportunities in severely impoverished villages. A portion of all sales is donated to organizations that support community development projects in the region.
