Description

This purse was hand-embroidered in Sainte Luce, Madagascar by Kirisy (K 500).

This purse is multi-purposeful and measures H 9cm x L 13cm.

Stitch Sainte Luce is a sustainable livelihoods programme training women embroiderers in south east Madagascar. The programme has been running for three years and is supported by a local NGO, SEED Madagascar. All of Stitch’s products are hand-embroidered on beautiful cotton with multi-coloured fabric, using designs that reflect the unique wildlife of the region. Over half of the women are now able to produce more than their entire monthly income just from the embroidery.

Stitch has expanded enormously due to the success of the previous phases. A greater number of women have been given the opportunity to train, and we now have an extraordinary range of brightly coloured, hand embroidered products.

Each item comes with an individualised card, with the code of the woman who made it to ensure that all the money goes back to the right workers. You can find out more about our embroidery team on the Stitch Sainte Luce website (link below).

Care info: hand wash with care using cold water, cool iron
