Found in Cambodia, these oversized wallets have a wonderful story. Made from recycled cement bags, formerly impoverished farmers were taught how to expertly sew products that now provide a sustainable income for their families and brings an awareness of recycling and repurposing. Measures 4" wide by 8" length and 1 inch deep (when closed). This is one of our very favorite travel essentials...wide enough to hold your passport, foreign currency AND doubles as a chic clutch for cocktails once you're at your destination!
Handmade in Cambodia by a Fair Trade group of artisans, the purchase of these wallets makes a difference. In a world where over one billion of the earth’s people live on less than $1 per day, Fair Trade businesses aim to combat poverty by providing a fair, livable wage for all workers, ensuring safe working conditions, empowering the disadvantaged to be active players in their workplace, aiding community development efforts, respecting cultural identity, and promoting environmentally sound business practices. It is a sustainable way to provide economic opportunity and hope for marginalized people in some of the poorest communities worldwide.
