  • Just In: Etu Aso-oke Minisnap clutches

    The Etu Minisnap Aso-oke clutch was so popular we decide to bring it back. This Aso-oke fabric is a true vintage and I am told it well over 50 years old at the very least. Probably closer to a century! Personally, I think blue is the new black. It still easily complements other colours without being as predictable as black.

    In addition to that, I have introduced the Etu and Lace which is a variation of this mini blue clutch purse. This newer version is in a slightly lighter shade of blue (an even rarer type of the Etu fabric). It also incorporates a hint of Guipure lace for that added touch of elegance. I think it would make a great purse for a wedding or for a cocktail party.

    A converation started- if you are all dressed up and can’t think of how to make the conversation flow with your fellow party goes, tell them about how your purse is probably over a 100 years old!

    What do you think? Is your flavour more stark and simple, or a little more playful with the lace? Lets know your thoughts.

  • Vintage Aso-oke Megasnap Clutch

    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)
