Jeannie Ahlam Foldover Clutch (036)


This simple and elegant foldover clutch is truly a dream!  Named for the Arabic word for "dream," this beautiful clutch was created by our Advanced Artisan Fatma, a refugee from Somalia, who dreams of one day owning her own business.  Made with up-cycled fabrics and decorative leather accents fashioned from salvaged textile swatches, the Ahlam Foldover Clutch represents the dreams that are brought to life every day at Re:new.  Here, Re:new's artisans learn sewing, design and management skills that will help bring their dreams one step closer.  By purchasing this clutch, you help make dreams come true.

As always, your purchase provides employment and community for refugee women resettled in the USA.  As you carry this clutch, you carry the story of the remarkable woman who made it, right here in the USA.
