This wallet is a perfect piece for eco-shoppers. 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 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, wallets & bags.
Besides being a 100% sustainable product, this jute wallet is an ethically-made product too. This wallet is 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.

Shopanthropic is where high quality designer products meet social change locally and globally. We believe that people can have a significant positive impact on the world through their purchases. We aspire to bring trendy 'feel good' designer products that are ethically-made, fair trade or eco-friendly. We represent the unique creativity of our global network of artisans. Many of these artisans are women from some of the most deprived and disadvantaged communities, with very little opportunities for self-development and growth and in most cases, their work and their identity both remain uncounted or undercounted and unseen. We give them a stage to share their stories, an ability to grow and the opportunity to better their lives and their communities.
