Beautifully handcrafted, each stitch of the kantha coin purse came from the hands of women working toward a better life.
Handmade by the women artisans of Blue Mango, an organization that supports disabled women in India by providing fair wages, free medical treatment, and retirement benefits. The cooperative is named for the variety of mango called 'neelam' that turns bluish on the edges before ripening into a golden yellow. The symbolism is a value that Blue Mango holds dear -- transformation and positive change. Blue Mango's objective is to run a sustainable business by and for marginalized women who are disabled, deserted, widowed, or living with AIDS. Read more of their artisan stories below.

Bought the black one over a year ago and loved it-perfect for my loose change and doesn't take up a lot of room in my pocketbook. Lost it! Ordering another one :-)
