Rispar Kajusiuime embroidered the orange tulips and butterfly that are featured on this cross-body purse. The 9.25' x 6.5" purse is made of black denim with orange/tan batik lining that complements the embroidery. It has an exterior zippered pocket and a detachable hand-woven strap.
Rispar lives in southern Uganda, in the diocese of Ruwenzori close to the Rwandan border – a particularly beautiful area of Uganda.
Rispar's life revolves around caring for her family and her crops, and she meets weekly with her fellow needle workers. She will use the funds she receives from her needlework to provide education for her children; medical support for herself and her family; supplies for her crops; and maintenance to her home.
