  • Description

    Keep your coins together in the Coffee and Cotton Coin Purse and never waste time rooting around the bottom of your bag to find a quarter again! Traditional hand-woven skirt fabric, still worn in the Guatemalan highlands, is repurposed to create this coin purse. Fair trade partner Ruth and Naomi was formed to create jobs for women widowed by civil war and to provide scholarships for their children. More than three decades later, the grandchildren of the original artisans are still benefitting from these opportunities.
