PURNA 1 satchel bag was hand crafted in Nepal from cotton and ethically sourced scraps of buffalo leather, recycled from the cutting waste in other productions.

 

This single compartment handbag is uniquely closed with a leather strap that is pulled through a leather belt loop. The bag has a decorative motif hand embroidered on the leather, and the interior is fully lined with a dark-brown cotton lining. Inside the bag there is a zip pocket and two additional open pockets for organizing small items in the main compartment. Outside there is another zip pocket on the back. The bag can be slung over the shoulder or worn across the body. The strap is adjustable and strengthened with leather.

The color of the product may slightly differ from the pictures due to the monitor settings. The bags are made by hand so minor differences in craft are possible and represent the unique character of each bag. Leather has been hand tanned with traditional methods which may result in some variation of color, difference in texture and small imperfections, which is not a product defect, it emphasizes the unique character and hand crafted origin of each handbag.

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.
