Joyn Clutches


Joyn Clutches





My sis-in-law gave me one of these clutches for an early Christmas present, so I can personally attest to their adorbs-osity.  Completely cute, and great to use alone or inside another massive, mommy-sized bag.  I wanted to feature them in the Slave-Free Christmas Challenge, but realized that they mainly do in-store retail…then I found them online, alongside several other fair-trade purses.  Yes, right here, folks:

Why I Like This:

Joyn utilizes as many pairs of hands as possible per item.  More hands mean more jobs, so Joyn seeks to make everything as handmade as possible.  It takes 14 sets of hands to make one of their items.  Everything is hand-picked (organic cotton), handwoven, hand block printed, hand stitched.  These hands live in northern India, where they receive a good work environment, education for their kids, vocational training, and medical coverage for their families.

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.
