Alejandra Dunphy Designs Eco-Friendly Fair Trade Clutches | Handwoven Wool Purses from Peru

Posted on: Aug 20

Atlanta based designer Alejandra Dunphy shows us that eco-chic can be stylish with her new range of green clutch purses. The former environmental design consultant has built on her knowledge of sustainable materials and practices in the development of her own accessories line.

Each purse is made of Merino wool hand loomed by Peruvian artisans using traditional Andean weaving practices. These craftspeople work under Fair Trade conditions, achieving the kind of financial independence rarely afforded in their South American communities.

The vibrant purses are colored using natural dyes made from plants, roots, and vegetables. Their handles are sourced from fallen branches, and their linings made of organic cotton. These are accessories that take their green philosophy seriously!

This pretty geometric patterned Nazca clutch costs $66, and no purse in the collection costs more than $100. These items are available from selected boutiques in Georgia, from Uncommon Goods, and Alejandra Dunphy's online store.
