We have two types of purse: one is made from handloomed lightweight cotton. This is called Mangalagiri cotton and, as a fine weave cotton, is best for putting gifts in or for keeping jewellery in rather than for coins.
The hand-crocheted stripy purses come in a range of bright colours, with sequins on the flowers and more muted tones. They have a zip at the top and are lined with colour coordinated satin. A perfect gift.
