Wallet 1: Pink Birds
This is an absolute one of a kind wallet made by repurposing a traditional brocade textile featuring the vibrant pink birds. We think they look like doves - what do you think?
Holds IDs and credit cards, complete with two flaps for bills, and a back zipper area for coins.
The inner lining is a repurposed traditional corte (wrap skirt). This wallet was made from textile leftovers in our effort to reduce waste and use the beautiful handwovens to their fullest as our show of appreciation.
