The Carol Cassidy Silk-Lined JungleVine® Clutch is an elegant pochette clutch purse made using gorgeous earth-toned JungleVine® weave and lined with super-soft silk on the inside. This is one of those times when things come together to form something greater than the sum of their parts. The JungleVine® Fiber is harvested, hand-spun, and made into bags by Khmu artisans in Laos. The silk is harvested, spun, dyed, and woven by disabled artisans in Cambodia.
Weaves of Cambodia provides a livelihood for disabled weavers, most of whom are landmine survivors, or their widows and orphans. In addition to the weavers, the organization’s work benefits silkworm farmers, fiber spinners, and dyers. They create magnificent quality silk sold around the world under the Carol Cassidy label.
The JungleVine® Foundation’s Nature Bag project reduces poverty of some of the poorest people on earth, the Khmu tribespeople, while preserving their ancient craft and mitigating global climate change through the promotion of eco-friendly JungleVine® fiber products.
Together we present you a very rare opportunity – the chance to own a beautiful silk-lined clutch that succeeds in being both rustic and elegant while helping two wonderful causes and the planet. Become a part of something bigger than yourself. Join the collaboration between Weaves of Cambodia and the JungleVine® Foundation while treating yourself to something exquisite.
