Leather- For any leather clutch bag you're considering, make sure it is made with full grain leather. This is important because if the leather doesn't have the grain on it, it will look frumpy and fall apart at a young age. Every leather hide comes with the top layer all grain. Those are the resistant and tightly woven fibers that naturally protect the cow. But the hide is thick, so tanneries usually splits it in half, the top from the bottom. Now they have two hides to sell. One expensive hide with all of the strong enduring grain and one cheap low quality hide that looks nice but isn't. If you wonder why one leather clutch bag or leather satchel is more expensive than another, it is for this main reason.
Lining- We lined it with the suede side of a luxurious feeling and looking pigskin. It's not just good looking, it's actually stronger than the cowskin. Together with the full grain leather, this is a leather clutch bag to hand down for a few generations to use.
I redesigned this leather clutch bag to give more functionality. It's the perfect "go to carry bag for everyday or traveling. This leather crossbody clutch is an easy carry bag and has lots of ways to carry this. It has a snap closure for easy access.

The story behind this leather bag
Redesinged because you asked for us to redesign this leather clutch purse to fit more and to be a crossbody purse. Well, we listened and have redesigned this clutch to make it you new everyday carry crossbody clutch. This leather purse marks the first time I've added a tassel to a more formal leather and I just love the result, it's one of my all-time favorites. This clutch will go with everything from jeans to dress.
