With a little longer strap than our popular rectangular bag, this unique eco friendly clutch bag is made in Mexico from foil candy wrappers. You can still small the slight fragrance of the candy that first occupied the packaging. With this bag you can be both trendy and socially responsible. These bags are produced and purchased under Fair Trade conditions. They are very sturdy with a zipper closure. This purse is 9 by 7 inches. The dark fabric strap is slightly longer at 30 inches than the strap on our traditional shoulder bag, which is 22 inches.
Meet the Artisans
|MYO Accessories is well aware of the poverty among indigenous groups in central Mexico, where the family-run business is located. The business was started to help these people live better lives by employing the rural women, to make their products, such as the candy wrapper purses. In addition to offering these women employment, they give them the opportunity to take the materials to their homes so they can better care for their families while they work, and whatever materials are left over are free for the women to use in personal ventures. This helps improve the quality of their lives as well as provide a sustainable income.|
