Recycled Rara Butterfly Bag
Let the fashionista and the treehugger in you unite while toting our fabulous tote-style butterfly bag -- and promote earth-friendly practices and social awareness.
In the spirit of traditional Haitian rara bands -- who create instruments from coffee cans and other discarded items to play in street festivals -- each special purse 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.

Created to help women worldwide gain economic security for themselves and their families by earning fair wages for their handiwork, Global Girlfriend sources women-made, fair-trade imported, eco-friendly products.

November 25, 2013 - This wristlet is really cute, and is very much as pictured. It is a good size for a wristlet - easily holds a phone and wallet with room to spare. Has no internal pockets, but the magnetic flap closure is quite secure, and I've had no problems with small loose items such as keys and lip balm falling out. A very good buy, highly recommended.
August 8, 2013 - SO much more beautiful in person! I could hardly believe my eyes when I opened this up. It has a beautiful intricate metallic silver that is woven through that the picture does not do justice! YOU NEED THIS BAG.
