Catrinka's products are all locally made by women, for women. Ethically crafted by female artisans from India and Mexico, Catrinka's authentically crafted handbags, clutches, and totes provide opportunities for women and girls around the world. Catrinka's products are so much more than simple fashion statements. For many women, a handbag represents financial empowerment and independence. It acts as a symbol that a woman has, for the first time, her own monetary means to support herself. When you shop Catrinka’s ethnic handbags, you are helping support its ongoing efforts to provide women the ability to earn financial stability, independence—and for girls—life skill learnings opportunities. Catrinka sells its products with a purpose, and when you decide to purchase from Catrinka, you’re helping women and girls reach that same goal.
