Sustainable Jute Clutch
These clutches are a perfect piece to carry on their own or use with a larger handbag.
Jute, a fiber called ‘hessian’ in North America, is a natural, highly affordable, versatile, biodegradable and renewable fiber. Jute is known to have characteristics such as high intensity, long durability, fire and heat resistance, and a silky luster & texture. Traditionally, Jute fabric, also known as ‘burlap’, was used to make products like sacks and ropes. With recent technological advancements, Jute fabric is now used in making a variety of products including fashion accessories such as clutches & bags.
These clutches are made by rural artisans and weavers in the state of Karnataka, India, with the support of a cooperative that is providing an alternative form of livelihood to women in the non-farming sector and is building rural economies by easing pressure on agriculture. In this cooperative, workers are receiving benefits such as an annual bonus, subsidized food, health insurance and loans besides their fair earnings.
