Purse & Clutch Giveaway! Sponsor Highlight!









A very sweet sponsor of mine wanted to do a giveaway, and I could not be more THRILLED to introduce you all to Purse & Clutch!


This is a great company with an even greater heart! How can that be, you ask?  Well read more about it!




The mission of Purse & Clutch is to partner with reputable organizations who employ artisans from developing economies to create reliable, dignified, living wage jobs for those in need. Our vision is to connect consumers with sustainable alternatives to their current purchases in order to create a new normal of fair compensation - especially for those with otherwise limited opportunities to work.

All of the wholesale companies we choose to work with have a vision to connect the poor of their developing region with Western markets. We look for companies who pay a fair, living wage for their particular region and who are committed to creating a workplace that ensures no child labor or forced labor. We carefully screen our wholesalers to ensure they are committed to non discrimination, to environmental sustainability, and to favorable work conditions. Together, we work with existing skill sets in local economies, instead of changing cultural traditions or simply giving handouts, which encourages independence from outside aid that could only be a temporary source of help.


We are currently purchasing our products from JOYN (Northern India),  Handmade Expressions (multiple rural villages throughout India), and are collaborating on product designs for El Transito Centro de Artes (Nicaragua). We are excited to expand our wholesalers by purchasing from Craftwork Cambodia in the fall and have begun discussions with a contact in rural Colombia.

Now that you are so in love with this company, right(?), they are giving YOU a chance to win a Classic Clutch of your choice! ($24.50 value)
