Jenny Krauss

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."

Comments about PEACOCK FEATHER POUCH:

This was a gift for a friend. I will use it to package a piece of jewelry inside. The peacock feather design was the same as the theme of her party.

      Comments about PEACOCK FEATHER POUCH:

      This pouch is not as pictured in the catalog OR on the website. I was looking for a new coin and bill holder with a simple zipper to close it. This has a large round attachment on the zipper that's not shown in any view online and is not on the one shown in the catalog. It's also a little large for my intended use. For my purposes, this was a deal-breaker and the pouch is going back in today's mail.
