I created the Megasnap clutch to be a huge statement piece. That one accessory that will always be a talking point no matter what you wear. Whether it is to finish off your formal outfit or LBD or to add glamour to a casual ensemble, this is definitely the piece for you.

It is made in a Nigerian fabric known as ?Aso-oke? and this particular version is an old-school vintage version which is now quite rare. The style is perforated and beyond the visible perforations is a layer of olive green satin fabric. Satin, Aso-oke, Cotton; many layers one clutch!

Aso Oke (pronounced ah-SHOW-kay) is a hand-woven textile made and worn by the Yoruba tribe in Nigeria, West Africa. It is a thick fabric and similar in texture to canvas or denim. Its finished strips are usually sewn together to make clothing. The textile is worn during special occasions like weddings, festivals, coronations and so on.

It is lined internally with a strawberry and blue African batik cotton fabric for that little bit of extra fun. It has several layers of padding to give it stability and to protect its contents. It is quite spacious and will fit a phone, money, keys, make-up, camera and a lot more. It has a handy strap making it easy to carry and has a small internal pocket.

Dimensions:
Width at top: 12 inches (30 cm)
Width at bottom: 14 inches (35 cm)
Height: 8.25 inches (21 cm)

A cute little clutch bag which is versatile enough to inject effortless elegance into an outfit.

It would make a great evening bag or could easily add a nice touch to a more casual look.

This one is a small sized purse which will hold all of your essentials. It is made in a light blue 'Aso-oke' fabric from Nigeria which is a hand woven textile. 'Etu' refers to a blue Aso-oke which is a rare find as the techniques and materials used for production are now uncommon. This one is a vintage and is at least 50 years old. The age of the fabric and the organic nature of the weave is what gives it its charm.

The Aso-oke is contrasted with a hint of Guipure lace for that touch of old fabric techniques from two very different continents!

It has several layers of padding to give it stability and to protect its contents. It will fit a phone, money, keys, make-up, camera and a lot more.

Dimensions:
Width at top: 8 inches (20cm)
Width at bottom: 9 inches (24cm)
Height: 6 inches (15cm)
