We adore this beaded coin purse, it's perfect for your essentials. Measures approximately 6" long x 3.5" tall x 1" deep. Each paper bead is hand rolled, glued and finished with 5 coats of a non-toxic varnish. The beads are then stitched together with gold-colored glass seed beads.

This design is exclusively produced by Constance Alwoch who lives in the cramped Acholi Quarters in Kampala, Uganda.  She is just one of our artisans* whose involvement in our partner initiative, The Namugongo Good Samaritan Project (NGSP*) has enabled her to become a business owner, self-sufficient and a leader in her community. 

Constance, being uneducated, lives in an 8'x10' concrete room with her 4 children who sleep on a hard leaf mat on the floor. After having survived domestic violence, the death of two newborns and work under the hot equatorial sun in a stone quarry, she proudly explains the improvements to her life through bead making in this moving YouTube video:
