Coin Purses of Recycled Weaving


These coin purses are made of hand-weavings recycled from native costumes woven by indigenous peoples for their own use. By buying their used clothing we are supporting their cultural values and adding worth to their work. Before this type work was produced, the people only got one use from their clothing. The base is usually cotton, but other materials may be used in the adornments. Various shapes and sizes are classed by village.
