The Carmen Clutch


My mother was born, by mistake, in Madrid. My grandmother did not have time to get back to London. To celebrate, my mother was given the middle name Carmen, after a beautiful Spanish aristocrat, who ran off with a bullfighter. This clutch, available in romantic earthy tones, can be customized with interchangeable tassels. To be as unique and individual as Carmen herself. Open the clutch up and my good luck beetle lines the bag. The leather on your IH Carmen Clutch will not remain pristine. It is a natural leather, meaning it is naked with no synthetic top finishes, so scratching will occur, and shade and texture can vary. What is so wonderful about this leather is that it looks and feels in fact like leather, which is an imperfect and organic material. It looks and feels luxurious and supple in your hand unlike PU coated leathers common in the market today. Each bag has it's own character, brought to it by the unique piece of leather with which it is crafted. So your bag is truly your bag.
