Tierra Handwoven Cotton Clutch w Removable Handmade Merino Poms

- Handmade by a group of artisan women who work on traditional backstrap looms - They work as a democratic collective and elect a new group president and treasurer every year, with orders being divided between the entire group - The piece is first woven flat on a backstrap loom - It’s then sewn on machine, with a cotton lining added inside - The top features a zipper that’s roughly the same colour as the exterior/interior textile - The strand of wool pompoms are handmade by a family of artisans who wash, card and spin this extra soft merino wool on a traditional drop spindle - This is a natural, undyed wool - In addition to making pompoms, the family also crochets, knits and weaves with wool, both on a standing traditional loom, and a backstrap loom - The pompoms are removable and can easily be washed with other pieces - While the bag can be washed in the machine, we’d recommend hand washing to protect the finishes and keep the form - The piece is not pre-washed, so it will shrink after the first wash - Hang or lay flat to dry, do not put in the dryer - Hot iron, if required - The pompoms can be wiped with a damp cloth when required, as they are made from 100% wool, they won’t require many cleanings at all
