These handmade beauty pouches made by Papaya & Co are versatile and come in handy for a variety of things such as a make-up bag, organizer or beauty accessory. Coming in various colourful African print fabrics, they can also double as a clutch or coin purse. Oh wait! There is even more you can do with the pouch such as using it as a protective case for your sunglasses. And if you work or go to school, use it as a pencil-case.
Papaya & Co is a Canadian-based brand committed to bringing you fresh and innovative designs but they also believe in helping those in need. To that effect, they are currently selling the beauty pouches on their Etsy store and a portion of the proceeds will be directed towards Food for The Poor, an organization that provides emergency relief to Haitians in the form of food.
The brand is dedicated to helping those in need and their current method comes in the form of emergency relief, given the devastation Hurricane Matthew left in Haiti. Just like me, Papaya & Co believes that trade, not aid can truly bring change and dignity to local communities. Soon, they will be taking their production to Haiti in the hopes to impact the local economy positively.
Overall, I think that if you love African print, this purse is worth getting. Carry a piece of Africa everywhere you go. The pouch is small, lightweight, portable and fits easily in any purse. Plus if patterns are your thing, the touch of prints in the fabric is well worth the purchase. You can access Papaya & Co’s online store here.
