Custom listing for Mary

This fabulous silk fabric is from a 1930's (yes, 1930's) kimono I was lucky enough to find. The black and off white pattern reminds me of Japanese script and highlighted honeysuckle pink! The lining is a light grey "ribbon" pattern cotton. I paired it with a modern, clean, nickel free, silver, 13 inch chained frame.

I use a super thick fusible lining with all my silk kimono clutches that will keep it's shape even without anything in the bag. I do this to ensures that you don't have that "floppy pocket" look of other clutches and while keeping items from sticking out in odd shapes when filled. I also double stitch all of my bags to give it that extra quality that will make the bag last a lifetime.

This clutch measures at almost 5 inches, top to bottom and 9 inches at the widest part. Perfect size to hold all your essentials. It's perfect to carry your money, cell phone, car keys and ID (I've even been able to get a small camera in there as well).

Also, please note, that because the fabric is vintage, there may be some minor flaws on the fabric, that I have carefully taken into consideration in the making of the clutch. It does not take away from the over all appearance of the bag.

*The metal purse frame is made of iron with a nickel-free finish.
*It is good for people with nickel sensitivity: it’s hypoallergenic, itch and rash resistant.
*It has a 2-coat protective coating that allows fingerprints to wipe off with ease unlike those with a 1-coat finish.
*It is tested for lead and meets the US’s Environmental Protection guidelines.
*The nickel-free finish is white-silver in appearance and is best described as looking like sterling silver.
***It is trademarked to WhileBabyNaps.Etsy.com and Khuong LLC.

***Each of my clutches come with a pretty dust bag to keep it nice and clean when not in use and can also be used as gift wrapping. Also, if this is a birthday gift and you'd like for me to send a birthday card on your behalf, please let me know at checkout!


Can you imagine all the things this beautiful fabric has seen? Would you love to own a piece of Asian history that has been made into something modern and fresh?
Since I started to make these, I have noticed many couture designers are now using them in their bags as well!
So why not also carry that special fabric to your holiday party or special night out?
