Claire V. handbags

Claire V. offers a unique collection of handbags made of hand-loomed silks in a stunning array of colors. Many of the purses are embellished with gorgeous embroidery and neat details like waterbuffalo horn handles. Here is a small sampling of their huge selection:

The bags are handcrafted by landmine victims in Cambodia, who are trained in sewing and silk weaving, and are paid a fair wage. Ten percent of Claire V's net proceeds are donated to education and health initiatives for women and children in Southeast Asia, so you can buy a handmade work of art and contribute to a worthy cause at the same time.

    Ohh, I love their bag made of water buffalo horn! And it's marked down to only $35.00.

    I love the concept behind their company and knowing the fact that it is helping people in need.

    Of course the designs are awesome and the prices are so good.
