This clutch was designed for Ayla with desert iconography. We combined Navajo design elements, wild roses and cow skulls. Stained brown with brass hardware. Clutches usually come with an adjustable strap but she opted for a wrist strap instead.
Cow Skull Symbolism: Cows are highly respected and treated as sources of life across cultures. The cow skull pays homage to what was, the fruits of life and are an emblem of mortality. Protection from all natural elements, strength, courage and death.
Wild Rose Symbolism: A powerful symbol of passion. It is associated with Aphrodite, the goddess of beauty and love, who is often portrayed with a crown of roses on her head. Also a symbol of balance and new beginnings. It is contrasted by thorns symbolizing defence and loss. The wild rose brings an open simplicity to these traits.
The Clutch, perfect for day or night, a smaller bag for the essentials. 5" (H) x 10" (L) x 1.5" (W) comes with a detachable strap that can be adjusted with a buckle. Hand carved, tooled, dyed and assembled in Vancouver, BC by Joren Eulalee. This bag is made to age; crafted with a hand selected leather hide and brass hardware.
