Earth Squared’s popular Emily purses may be small and compact, but they certainly work for their money! Just the right size for bank cards, coins and notes, this dainty, soft and extremely light purse is easily slipped into your bag or pocket, for days when carrying around a large purse would be needless and impractical. Ever so handy for a day trip or evening out, it also has two neatly zipped compartments to keep your valuables safe and secure. Our friends at Earth Squared work with talented artisans who have retrained (many from rice farmers receiving irregular and unfair wages), and now have multiple new skills to their names. Working as a seamstress or in quality control, for example, a person can earn a good standard of living and can also afford to send their children to school and fund them through higher education. Earth Squared’s partners also pay National Insurance for each staff member, covering medical costs and a pension for retirement, all of which is above the national legal requirements. Why not meet the makers over on our blog?
