About the clutch:

I made it.
What inspired me was the fabric.
I had a small remnant of a brocade fabric
that I bought from a small fabric manufacturer in France a few years ago.
Despite being made in France, the fabric made me feel like I was in Kyoto just looking at it!

I am in love with traditional Japanese culture.
I’ve never been to Japan and I don’t even know any Japanese people.
Yet their sense of design enchants me.

Kimonos,  ikebana (art of flower arrangement), sushi, zen gardens…

The words that immediately jump to mind when I think of Japanese design are:


This clutch isn’t a masterpiece of Japanese design (after all, I am not Japanese!) but it is elegant and timeless.


Here you can see the front part of the clutch and the brocade fabric.

I added two “flowers” to the zipper pull, making it both practical for zipping open
and to add an exotic touch. 🙂

The inside has orange and fuchsia satin.

The back is simple, all in black, so as to keep the overall design understated & elegant.
This fabric is 100% linen, made in Barcelona.
It can also be worn with the black side looking out.

Made with lots of LOVE 🙂

I realize that evening bags are often just worn once and then stashed away in closets and forgotten. What a pity that would be if that happened to this bag. 🙁

So it occurred to me that when you travel, this bag could be the ideal place to store your undies & socks so they wouldn’t get all jumbled in your suitcase. And you’d have that evening bag ready, just in case you got invited out to that chic little bistro on the Seine…..
You just never know!

Do you like this bag?
Did you like the story behind it?

Invite your friends to join the give-away!


For each friend you invite,
you will receive an additional chance to win.
