Recycled Rara Button Clutch

Item # 35962
No longer available

Perfect for a night out on the town, our clutch is a shimmery, colorful accessory that has origins even more fantastic than the bag itself. Made out of 100% re-purposed waste materials collected in Haiti, this is one eco-friendly accessory you can feel good about.

In the spirit of traditional Haitian rara bands -- who create instruments from coffee cans and other discarded items to play in street festivals -- each colorful clutch is handmade by artisans in Haiti out of recycled materials as part of the RARA project. The RARA Project helps underprivileged Haitian women generate income to provide for their families, and trains them in skills such as sewing and weaving, all while promoting environmental responsibility.

Each purchase provides an extra donation to GROW -- Girls' Right to Opportunity Worldwide. Through this program girls in developing countries are provided the opportunity to attend secondary school, in turn providing them with a economically better, healthier future.

  • Made of recycled materials
  • 4.5" T x 8" W (11.4 x 20.3 cm)
  • Clutch snaps closed
  • Handmade in and fairly traded from Haiti
  • While color will be consistent, the unique nature of each bag ensures that the pattern will vary
