Floral Fireworks

This handcrafted pouch is lit up with the fantastic colors and textures of Peruvian needlework. Each clutch, with its pyrotechnic floral patterns, features a zippered enclosure to keep your necessities securely inside.

Designer Jenny Krauss has made it her mission to provide work for the talented but impoverished artisans of South America. Employed under fair trade practices, craftspeople in Peru embroider these bags using a curly wool thread, which gives each bag a unique, textured appearance.

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."

                I just love the look and the 'history' of where/how it was made - LOVE IT!! Would like a purse style - something larger. Only problem might be the price point with a larger one...

                  This unique product could be used by any age. It is so colorful and beautiful that it could stand alone as a small clutch or could be used to store items within a purse.
