All Over Africa Black Oversized Leather Clutch
I had so much fun creating these oversized clutches. After I found beautiful vintage Kuba Cloth* in Kenya, I travelled to Morocco where I searched out and found a craftsman who could bring my designs to life. Together we shopped the market to find luxurious, soft remnant leather that had the perfect colors to compliment the Kuba Cloth. Each bag is completely one of a kind and can transition easily from day to night. They can be mixed with jeans and a tee or your go-to black dress.
Details: Fully lined, button closure, one zipper pocket.
*Kuba Cloth is made by the Kuba people in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Men harvest Raffia palms and weave mats with the leaves which are then embroidered by women in beautiful geometric designs. The Kasai Kuba Cloth is sometimes referred to as velvet because of the raised texture created in the embroidery process. The beautiful colors are achieved by using natural dyes from native plants.
Because this item is handmade and uses vintage and remnant materials, it is perfectly imperfect.
