The front is made up of 3 coordinating pieces of upholstery weight fabrics in reds, purple, green and tan. For the back side of the bag I used a lighter natural colored chenille. The fabrics are interior design samples rescued from a local interior design shop.
The clutch zips closed with a YKK zipper. I added a bit of sage green leather cord and a hand cut and printed maroon suede Hamsa to the zipper pull.
The Hamsa, also known as the Hand of Fatima or the Hand of Miriam among other names, is a universal symbol of protection. It's exact origins are ancient and unknown but it is widely used in the both Jewish and Middle Eastern jewelry. You will also find them used in many other cultures in much the same way. They hang on doorways, keychains, car mirrors, jewelry and anywhere else one might want to ward off the evil eye.
On one side of the bag is an oxidized brass D-ring. There is a detachable wrist strap on a brass swivel clip that you can use on the bag or on your key ring. The wrist strap is made of red and green dupioni silk.
I lined the bag with a plaid in the same colors.
Fabric edges have been professionally serged for durability.
Width is just under 9.5 inches (24 cm.)
