Clutch From Start to Finish
|Frank Clegg Leatherworks|
Recently I had the pleasure of working with designer Frank Clegg on an exclusive clutch design to give away on CGWP. I spent a Saturday at his factory in Fall River, MA where I observed the process of making the bag by hand from start to finish. For what appears to be a simple design, a great deal of work went into each step. I was grateful for the experience to watch a true craftsman in his element.
Frank’s bags are gorgeous and classic. It was hard to decide which one would be best for the giveaway. With the approach of Fall, I wanted to introduce a simple clutch perfect for carrying around a few essentials such as an iPad, wallet, and cell phone. We tweaked a design he had in his collection to accommodate more items, and I selected the colors from the various high-quality leather hides he has in the factory. The combination of red, green, and navy are a favorite of mine and I was excited to incorporate the three colors into the clutch. I was very pleased with the final product. Frank generously gifted me with the bag featured in this post, and is making a second clutch for one of my readers.
Enter to win the one of a kind Frank Clegg clutch with the option to monogram your initials. A winner will be announced on Thursday, August 30th. Contest ends Wednesday at midnight. Best of luck to all who participate!
