An art-inspired coin purse is a more attractive way to corral change, credit cards, or other small items. The top-zip cosmetic purse has a full length outer zippered pocket for extra organization. These petite and colorful zip-top purses are made with woven tapestry fabric that recalls materials found in the costume collections at the Renwick Gallery. This "Wild Mango" Cosmetic and Coin Purse Set is designed, hand cut, and sewn in the USA.
There are over 50,000 objects in the textile collections of our National Museum of American History, Behring Center. The collections have two major themes: the production and use of textiles in America, and the evolution of textile technology through time. The collections, therefore, consist not only of fabrics, raw fibers and yarns, but also machines, tools and implements used to process them.
