SOPHIA CLUTCH BAG

SOPHIA CLUTCH BAG

£125.00

This beautiful clutch bag combines traditional craftsmanship & social enterprise. The heart of what Clare Hynes is all about. 

The bag is constructed in a small workshop in Mindanao, Philippines. The fabric used is T'nalak, an indigenous material handwoven by the T’boli people of lake Sebu, Mindanao. The Rattan sunburst pattern weave is known as Solihiya. Traditionally used in furniture, it gained popularity in the 19th century Spanish colonial era. When used as the backrest and seat of chairs it lets air through, providing comfortable rest in the tropical heat. The Solihiya and the brass clasp are handcrafted by skilled artisans also based in Mindanao.

The hand strap is handcrafted by a group of female artisans that Clare has partnered with from Tacloban, Philippines. Clare teaches them different techniques and they are able to create and work from home, earning a sustainable income without having to leave their families.

Size of the clutch is 18.5cm x 11.5cm x 5cm.

Size of the brass clasp is 3.8cm x 2.5cm x 3.8cm
