Our hand woven Carmela Riviera Stripe Clutch from Mercado Global features dreamy shades of blue on an ivory brocade base. This chic all season fold over clutch has a snap closure and leather welted inner pocket.
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.
