Our Iris Clutch with Tassels from Mercado Global features three long tassels in shades of blue on a handwoven black and ivory brocade base. This chic all season small clutch has a zipper closure and is fully lined.
Each Mercado collection starts with a journey to the highlands of Guatemala, where talented indigenous women artisans develop unique creations. Mercado Global artisans weave using two traditional methods – the traditional back strap loom or the foot loom. Mercado Global provides donor-funded business education and leadership programs to help women in marginalized populations become successful business owners. With this income, artisans provide nutritious food to their families and invest in their children’s education — and the community breaks the cycle of poverty.
