ASMI 1 cosmetic makeup pouch is handcrafted in Nepal from cotton woven on a backstrap loom.

 

The backstrap loom is one of the oldest types of looms, dating back to ancient Bronze Age civilizations. The loom is attached to the weaver's waist and operated with poles, strings, and the fabric's tension is maintained by balancing the weaver’s body.

 

The cosmetic pouch has a waterproof colorful polka dot lining, it is closed with a zipper and has a woven cotton handle.

The color of the bag may differ slightly from the photo, which may be caused by the individual settings of the computer screen or mobile device. Our bags are made by hand, so minor differences in workmanship are possible and constitute the unique character of each product.

 

 

At Purna Crafts, we believe that by creating an international outlet for local handicrafts, we support entire groups of talented producers from Nepal. We do not come to them as "benefactors" who want to offer them donations. We come as people who appreciate their work and admire their abilities. We want to pay them a fair price for their beautiful handicraft, propel their working potential and support small local organizations that create jobs and vocational training.  

We are currently cooperating with several local organizations that specialize in mobilizing people in difficult life situations, people with disabilities and women from rural areas to learn their profession and become independent. When these people are trained, they can get employment and work for their living as well as receive respect in their community, instead of waiting for donations.

We also wish to make original Nepali hand crafted products more accessible for people in other parts of the world. In the age of factory made products that all look the same, we believe that we have something special and unique, something that stands out in the crowd. A product that looks great, is functional and comfortable as well as different than everything else available in the mainstream shops. At Purna Crafts you can get one of a kind product for yourself or an original gift for your loved ones. You can rest easy knowing that your purchase actually made a difference is someone’s life.

Ethical trade benefits the entire community through the empowerment of cottage industry artisans.
