Description:

We are delighted to present these unique beaded pouches, each a vibrant display of handwoven craftsmanship, complete with zippers. Available in two cute styles: wallet and coin purse. The handcrafted beaded pouches originate from Honduras, crafted by artisans of the small indigenous community of the pueblo called Santa Barbara.

Each pouch requires 2-3 weeks of meticulous work. Each piece has a symbol, reflecting their spiritual connection to divinity and the universe. The artisans offer prayers and blessings during the crafting process. They can be used to hold trinkets, coins, money, makeup, and more! Every purchase contributes directly to supporting the community, aiding in the expansion of their outreach and financial capacity. It is our priority to assist these communities by sharing and selling their exquisite and distinctive artwork.

Santa Barbara, Honduras, houses only a handful of indigenous communities. Thirty communities within the Department of Santa Barbara have reported populations of 100 or more Lenca Indians. These communities are distributed across six municipalities within Santa Barbara. Historical records indicate the presence of Lenca Indians in the colonial era within the department of Santa Barbara, often referred to as Care or Taulepa (meaning "house" or "cave of the jaguar" in Lenca, as evidenced by the place name Taulabé), or Ulúa Indians.
