The Parachute Drawstring Pouch can be used as a small purse or to hold makeup, personal items, electronics charger cables, or other small items. The bags measure approximately 8 inches wide and 5 inches tall, with an additional inch in height for the drawstring band.
The drawstring pouches are reversible, with one side made of repurposed US military parachute and the other is either yellow or pink. The yellow is a bright gold color and the pink is a bright hot pink or raspberry pink. The bright colors make it easy to find items if you use that side as the inside.
The Parachute Drawstring Pouch features a drawstring closure with an adjustable plastic toggle to hold it closed. The drawstring has color-coordinated beads and a small gold metal piece stamped with our HEAVENDROPt logo. The beads will be coordinated with the color you select, but will vary in design.
The Parachute Drawstring Pouches are made in the USA of repurposed US military parachute material. The US military parachute material is purchased from the government once the parachutes are inspected and deemed no longer safe to fly by the military. Once the parachute material is decommissioned, we are able to have workers separate the parts and then hand sew the parachute drawstring purses. Each handmade bag supports our mission to provide meaningful jobs to people with intellectual disabilities, physical disabilities and veterans with disabilities. While we don’t disclose the disabilities of any individual worker, some include Down syndrome, Fragile X, Autism, blindness/visual impairment, PTSD, Traumatic Brain Injury and many others.
The parachute drawstring purse makes a great gift for family members, friends or co-workers. They are multi-use and are gifts with a unique story! Each contains a piece of American history and comes with an enclosed card detailing the story of HEAVENDROPt.
