Purse for the People is a social enterprise focused on manufacturing custom designed eco-friendly, handmade bags with each handbag being individually assembled here in the USA. Soon our customers will be able to create their own unique design online using our proprietary software.
The story of Purse for the People is one of following a more sustainable, approach to business that is made possible by partnerships with organizations like the Rainforest Alliance whose standards promote environmental, social and economic benefit to the artisans who weave the beautiful rattan. This is especially important because the natural woven fiber that the outer shell is constructed from grows wild in rain forests worldwide. http://www.rainforest-alliance.org/about/marks/rainforest-alliance-certified-seal. We work to make sure the forest will be there for future generations.
Our launch on Indiegogo in October 2015 began our efforts to bring our production to the USA. Here in Butte, Montana we are gearing up to manufacture each bag by hand with close care and attention to quality.
Purse for the People is on a mission to raise awareness and create fashion that is as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside.
