Green Floral Wallet
A delightful and practical leather ladies wallet with floral and leaf designs on a green background.
As each item is hand made they are unique and tones may vary.
Handmade by an artisan at Artisans Effort, a fair trade organisation in India. Artisans Effort was founded by a group of artisans, all specialising in their own fields eg embroidery, leather work, jewellery, paper products etc. They came together as they had heard about fair trade.
Today there are more than 150 families involved with Artisans Effort. 60% are women and 40% are men. Since Artisans Effort is an artisan based organisation the artisans needs and difficulties are very closely understood.
At present, Artisans Effort has taken the responsibility of 9 poor and needy children from Asansol (West Bengal ) and 5 very needy girls from our local in Howrah. Their books, uniforms and school fees are borne by this organisation.
With funds from running their fair trade business Artisans Effort has built a school for 300 children. They also provide scholarships for children who cannot afford to pay fees.
