Peanut Bison Leather Small Clutch

$120.00
In stock

Our signature clutches feature an origami inspired construction. One continuous piece of leather makes up the body of the clutch. The clutch is folded onto itself and joined with riveted leather spines, reinforcing the construction. The spines are capped with a small D- ring on each side to attach a clutch strap or purse strap.

 

The locking hardware features a twist lock that is easy to find without needing to look at the bag. The hardware is surface mounted allowing for easy repair in case you run over your purse with your car.

Everything about our signature bags is designed to be tough and elegant in their simplicity. Just like the belts we started with in 2004, we focus on utilitarian design for longevity.

 

Special notes for Bison clutches:

Our American Bison leather clutches feature a vintage metallic snakeskin lining leather. Once it’s gone, it’s gone for good. The bison leather of these clutches is butter soft and one of the most luxurious leathers in both feel and appearance that we’ve ever found.

 

- Width: 8" - Height: 4.5" - Depth: 1.5"

Care instructions: Love on it and it will love on you. Over time your clutch-purse will develop a natural patina. If your clutch-purse ever becomes soaked, dry it immediately but don’t apply heat. Water + abrasion are bad for any leather. For cleaning, use a slightly damp cloth to clean surface gunk like cheeseburger grease. I don’t know, you tell me why you got cheeseburger grease on your new bag. I understand if you wanted to sneak a McDonald’s cheeseburger into the movies, but you should have left the wrapping on. :)

Two years to develop such a simple and elegant handbag. 

Origami inspired construction: one piece of continuous leather folded into shape and riveted to the spine of the bag for rigidity.

Handbag life and care instructions:

Should anything befall your handbag, email us with photos and a description of the issue. Nearly anything besides cut leather can be repaired. We've seen locks run over by cars that are easily replaced. 

Made of American Bison and tanned in Kentucky. Little is needed to protect this leather. If you would like to use a product we suggest a leather protective balm. 

  • Leather gets slightly wet - Wipe off with clean cloth
  • Leather gets soaking wet - Do not wear while wet. Fill the bag loosly with clean crumbpled paper to fill out the bag. Do not lock the bag. Allow the bag flap to rest naturally. Leave bag to dry completely. Your leather will darken a bit. 
  • Leather gets dirty - Use a lightly damp soft cloth to wipe away dirt. Let air dry.

What to expect:

Graphic images are embedded IN the leather using our super secret process. The leather is protected with three coatings of our proprietary sealant making it scratch and water resistant. Think of it like a tattoo in leather.
