Srey Gift Set

Save even more when you purchase a Gift Set! This set contains a black Srey Crochet Purse from Cambodia and a Kiran Braided Multi-strand Necklace. Our artisan partner Srey Oun hand crafted the purse. She is a very inspirational woman as she was blinded, among many other injuries, in an acid attack about 15 years ago. She crochets each bag using only her sense of touch. Her niece sews the lining and zippers. We spent time with Srey Oun in her home in Phnom Penh a few years ago and left knowing we would do everything we can to help her maintain her independence. The necklace is handmade in India from strands of up-cycled silk sari fabric. The women working with Kiran Social enterprises live in the most difficult of circumstances in a slum area near the airport in Kolkata (Calcutta). The income that comes with every sale can make an amazing difference. The purse is 14" wide and 10" deep with double shoulder handles that have a 13" drop, zipper closure and a zippered exterior pocket. Lined in black cotton. The necklace has 4 braided strands that are interspersed with antique gold chains. The lengths are between 8" and 12" from the nape of the neck. Measurements can vary slightly due to being completely hand crafted.
