Eastern design meets western function in this embroidered and applique coin purse! Just right for carrying money, cards, keys, flash drives, or for giving as a gift. Each coin purse was made by the women of Craftbeauty in Vietnam. Craftbeauty was created in 2003 to support and train the disabled women to enable them to earn decent living, gain self-confidence and retain their dignity.

Farmers, who have no tailoring skills, earn low and inconsistent income when they first come to work with Craftbeauty are trained to be skillful tailors. With chance of work, they can earn a good income which allow their families have a good standard of living and also send their children to school.

Artisan: Craftbeauty

Artisan Diu

In Hanoi, Vietnam, where most people are raised to be farmers, there aren't a lot of vocational opportunities outside of agriculture. One stroke of bad luck can wipe out a year's worth of hard work -- drought or flood can destroy the year's crops, and the year's income. A lot of farmland is being purchased by developers of apartment buildings, leaving many farmers with no land, no vocational skills, and no source of income.

Craftbeauty is a fair trade craft organization that provides skills and a steady source of income to disadvantaged women who wouldn't otherwise have any options, including farming women, and women with disabilities. In Vietnam only about 15% of disabled persons receive training in vocational skills, and many end up unemployed and very poor. Craftbeauty offers these women (between the ages of 18 and 40 years old) a chance to learn about silk weaving, tailoring, embroidery, fashion, and quality control, and pays almost double the Vietnamese national livable wage. In addition to giving them a source of income, a skill set, and a safe workplace, these positions help the women retain their dignity, self worth, and confidence.
