Honest Kabwijamu created the beautiful image of flowers and butterflies on this purse. The 11" x 9" zippered clutch purse is made of black denim and is lined with a coral batik print that echoes the hues of the tapestry. It has an interior zippered pocket and detachable leather wrist strap.
Honest lives in southern Uganda, in the diocese of Rwenzori close to the Rwandan border – a particularly beautiful area known as the “Switzerland” of Uganda. Her life revolves around caring for her family and her crops.
Honest will use the funds she receives from her needlework to provide education for her children, medical support for herself and her family, seeds or fertilizer for her crops, and maintenance and repairs to her home; and to provide for any orphans for whom she cares as a result of the war, HIV AIDS or other illnesses.
Honest meets weekly with her fellow needle workers. The community they have developed through Threads of Blessing encourages each of them and has significantly raised their self-confidence.
