Description

Inspired by tradition and updated for contemporary wear, this upcycle Akha cotton clutch is one of our top sellers. The Akha use antique silver coins and Job’s Tear beads to decorate their clothing and head wraps.

Our co-design collaboration resulted in an idea to upcycle aluminium cans to make little coin-like disks and stitch them onto handwoven indigo cotton. We’ve incorporated the Job’s Tears along the trim, to help frame the clutch. With its matte finish, the coins add spark but not too much, making this a great piece for day or night.

  • Materials: 100% cotton, recycled can discs, Job’s Tears beads
  • Care Instructions: Hand wash in cool water, use mild soap
  • Dimensions: 19 cm x 13 cm (7.5 in x 5.1 in)
