Beauty in Bouclé

Featuring an original design by Jenny Krauss, this handcrafted piece dances with the vibrant colors and fantastic textures of needlework by fair trade artisans in Peru. Each pouch is hand-woven with curly, boucle thread, producing textures that are more varied and tactile than traditional embroidery. Each pouch features an expressive, turquoise bird poised before vibrant, 3D blooms, adding intrigue and exoticism to small, zipped-up necessities, like lip balm, electronics, cash, cards, and keys. Designed by Jenny Krauss. Handmade in Peru.

Jenny Krauss began making baby and home gifts 20 years ago, but has spent the last 10 years providing work for Bolivian and Peruvian artisans, often women with exceptional skills but few options for work.

"The women are often the sole support for their families and the work they do for me has not only helped them financially, but psychologically as well. They speak to me about lack of opportunity and how meaningful it is to create something they can sell. It's a joy to visit them and see changes in their lives."

Today, Jenny lives in New York and enjoys designing new products and visiting artisans. "Office work is a drag." She travels to Bolivia and Peru to meet with artisans and to provide them with new projects. "It's important to give and empower those less fortunate. Most people don't have a lot of opportunity to better their lives, so it feels good to be able to contribute something empowering and sustainable."

      She really likes it, but says it would have been better if it had a separate smaller pocket for coins.

        Comments about EMBROIDERED BIRD POUCH:

        Bought this based on other reviews and cute pic on website. The wallet I received is dull and shabby. Looks old and dirty. Sending it back. Very disappointed. The picture shows vivid colors. My wallet is dull and looks dirty and used. I bought it to give as a gift and i am ashamed to give it.

                  Beautifully made, even better quality than expected. I Love this darling little purse/bag. Will probably use it mostly for a little cosmetic bag.
