The bag is one of the most universal and oldest objects invented by man.


Bubbles and Groove Envelope Clutch

“The bag is one of the most universal and oldest objects invented by man. What began as a prosaic item of everyday use is now a luxury good that can confer status in an instant. Whether it’s a bag for kings or vagabonds, shamans or celebrities, nomads or professionals, griots or fashionable women, for workaday use or formal events, people around the world use them to carry their most important belongings: from seeds for the humble farmer, to money for the self-made mogul to personal items such as lipstick and a compact.”

– excerpt from an amazing book, Carried Away by Hélène David-Weill and Jean-Louis Dumas, Vendome Press and Hermès.

You can learn so much about a person by what someone carries in their bag. Whether it is a secret or a necessity, I hope to be a part of that for girls and women for years to come.

The numbers clutch is amazing. I tell you, I would immediately go to your shop and buy one save for one small detail: no money to spend. But I've bookmarked you, and hope for a windfall in the future!
