Crochet Coin Purse - Merlot
These cute little pouches are handmade by Srey Oun in Cambodia. Her story has been an inspiration to us for the past 8 years. She was blinded and disfigured in an acid attack many years ago. After depending on the kindness of others for the years it took to heal her injuries, this brave woman got back to work doing what she could do to gain independence and more importantly to earn the money to send her daughter to school. What she knew how to do was crochet so she started making bags. Every purchase of one of Srey Oun's bags is a step towards her new life and a very different future for her daughter. She also works with other acid attack victims to show them that healing is possible. The pouches are 5" x 4" x 2" with a zipper top. They are made from nylon cord and lined with nylon fabric. There can be some variation in size due to being handmade.
