Priya Purses


Priya Purses





I’m kind of developing a major crush on the foldover clutch in cerulean blue.  The hazard of writing this Slave-Free Christmas series is that I want to buy everything for myself, and this purse is incredibly tempting.  These gorgeous purses are handmade and hand-quilted from saree material, and they’re the perfect size for when I’m trying to act like an actual woman and not a mom, with my ginormous bag filled with everything from an old diaper to a matchbox car.

Why I Like This:

Priya sells accessories made by women rescued from human trafficking and forced prostitution in Kolkata’s red-light district.  The women receive rehabilitation, a safe work environment, training in business skills, and healthcare.  Through the hope of a new life and steady income, these young women are able to have their dignity restored.

Slave-Free Christmas Challenge:

This Christmas, I’ve challenged myself to shop my entire Christmas list from organizations that are helping people, not hurting people.  Today, 27 million men, women, and children live as someone else’s property.  Slaves are making the items that I’m buying to celebrate the birth of my Lord and Savior.  Somehow I don’t think He’s blessed by the blood on His birthday presents.  For more information on my Slave-Free Christmas project, click here.
