Polished Medallion Clutch c/o Market Colors |
(yup, you get 20% off the original price with code GIFTSWITHBOWS*)
You may remember GWB’s first introduction to Market Colors featuring their darling Mint Burst necklace this past winter. Well, after learning about the mission of this brilliant gem of a company I decided there was so much more to share about what it means to purchase something made by their partner artisans. I wanted to get a feel for the quality and see for myself the details and handiwork I had only admired through their online shop.
Before I tell you about the clutch itself, let me just take a moment to share the care and joy put into the packaging. I was delighted with their liberal use of darling washi tape, sweet hand written notes, and beautiful reminders of what this purchase means to the person who crafted it. Yes, you actually get to learn about WHO made each piece. These clutches in particular are made by women of Kenya. It all just felt so special and intimate.
I opened the clutch, neatly wrapped in tissue paper, and it immediately put a smile on my face. The fabric is a soft and vibrant cotton– mine is a bold shade of plum. It keeps its shape well, but doesn’t feel too stiff. It is lined and stays closed with a magnetic clasp closure. You can fit everything you need inside for a night out: keys, phone, wallet and gloss. It has great versatility to be dressed up for a wedding or down for a casual lunch with friends. Ultimately (and most importantly) I would definitely be proud to give this as a gift because it is simply lovely through and through– aesthetically and at its heart.
