Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Tuniyaton's father passed away when she was born and her mother could only afford to send her to elementary school. As a single mother, Tuniyaton struggled to educate her own children and endured many hardships such as sleeping in an unused toilet as she journeyed by train to sell her leather goods. In spite of her difficulties, she succeeded in educating her children and giving them the opportunities she was denied.

Tuniyaton uses modern methods and machinery to process the leather but her designs are handcrafted with traditional techniques, such as leather weaving and leather tooling. Each of her assistants was trained by older craftsman with many years of experience in traditional leatherwork.

Tuniyaton has struggled over the years and slowly built her leather workshop. After many setbacks along the way, she is now well established and both children help her. In addition, she offers work to others who assist her in crafting her handbag designs.

Tuniyaton has received 3 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $300 and the most recent for $800. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of leather to continue with her production.

Tuniyaton struggled to provide for her children when they were growing up but succeeded in giving them a good start in life.

The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.

Tuniyaton gives work to an assistant who is profoundly deaf.
