Clutches and purses, Ostrich skin

Ostrich clutch Ostrich clutch Ostrich clutch

Clutch - a handbag without handles, rectangular in shape, often an evening bag but used during the day as well. I really enjoy designing and making them as well as seeing the fanaticism with which some adore them.

 Ostrich clutch

When I made these clutches in black ostrich, a skin I had never worked before, I simply fell in love with this absolutely stunning material. Now I have made a belt and a couple of other items and it is time to buy some more in black and light brown. This new version is the cut off envelope that I recently terminated with a braided black finish.

  Clutch interior

 

The pattern is created on the skin from the feathers. Every point is where once a feather was held in place creating this lovely natural design and texture which is in my opinion one of the finest materials available to an accessories designer/artisan.

This version of the clutch below is a full envelope without braiding, stitched by hand with the finest linen thread from the north of France with calf skin in tan colour for an interior. My preference for the interiors are either red o tan but off course you can chose your own colour.
