'Pencil' Clutch




















It is called the pencil clutch for so many reasons but the obvious one is that it is reminiscent of the simple regular pencil case that holds stationary.

The pencil clutch is a minimalist yet funky clutch because sometimes you want something that is simple and functional but that still says a little something.

This one is made out of 'aso-oke' which is a heavy hand-woven fabric from southern Nigeria. Aso-oke is usually worn by Yoruba people during special occasions; festivals, weddings and most celebrations.


More colour and fabric combinations to come in this style but the first few have been in a red, black and white combination as its Valentines day soon.

Do you have anything in red, black or white that you absolutely love? If so please leave a comment and a link.

Thanks for reading.
