Upcycled Leather Clutch

For your sister Patrice, the accessory collector with a conscience: Stylishly understated and eco-friendly to boot, this classic clutch with an obi-like ribbon closure to keep its contents safe and secure is handmade from leather repurposed from old sofas (stains mercifully not included). Given their upcycled nature, each clutch is totally one-of-a-kind. If you’re after an exact color, you’re out of luck but, hey, that’s part of the fun when going the handmade-from-repurposed-materials route. Choose from dark, light, medium, and colorful for a general color combination. $48.
